    The competition is stiff. Birds taken to exhibitions are not from stock that is hatchery based or procured from stock bred haphazardly in backyards by propagators. Birds at the show will have been bred from exhibition stock and carefully selected for this hobby.

    The difference, seen in person with your own eyes, is rather astounding.

    Did that breeder show this line of birds? If so, what were the results of this person's exhibitions?
