The Reds were pretty darn good. You missed out! Its funny that I thought there was a man there admiring the reds who look a lot like you. There was a man from the CMBF group whose birds are really good and he placed but I can't recall where (sorry about that). I can find out later or you can wait to see the posted results on the web site. I was sitting with a judge for a short while talking about what stood out for each of us and he mentioned that the showing of reds were good this year so I offer you his opinion to support my novice eye. There were something like a doz being shown in singles, young, older and trio etc.
What you really missed out on were the Assies and Jersey Giants! I know you would have been happy with them as I was. NICE. If you want more contact info pm me.
Will I see any of your birds at any of the upcoming shows???

x2 Since the Congress and with the Nationals coming up next year so close to us I am bitten by the show bug for sure!
Regarding books: if you like books, as I do, and want one on SOP there is no replacement for the SOP book. I have finally seen in one person and it is worth it. I love looking and touching it and oh yes, you want that book. You can look up the official club sites for each breed and they usually post sop on their site with pics which I find very helpful. Subscribe to the threads in here for your bird of choice and expect to read and learn a lot but again with pics. If you are interested in breeds I raise/keep ask me a few questions. Go to a show and look-- boy is that an eye opener. Do diligence ie do your research!
Now.... more questions: where does one get a show cage for reasonable and can anyone recommend basic tutorials on showing? I will do a search in here too but if you have already done the leg work then "TY" for posting it
