    OK, everybody. Where were you??? My DD and I wore our homemade tags around for a couple of hours but never saw anyone with theirs on.

    Her black bantam cochin hen won Champion featherfoot and competed for Best Bantam!! OMG...she was/we were so excited...These photos are the greatest but they are below.

    It was incredibly LOUD with all the crowing, honking, quacking (I HATE call ducks, OK??) I was ready to buy the gray call duck that was competing for best waterfowl and have it for dinner!! Seriously, how do you duck people stand the CONSTANT quacking??? It's so loud!

    This was actually 2 shows being held together in one place because of the high fuel prices. So the hen was champion in the Gold Coast showand reserve champion in the Central Fl. show.

    DD was able to talk to one of the judges and ask him what he would like to see improved in the hen. He mentioned that although she has molted, her cusion feathers still need about another inch. He called it being "stuck in the molt". He said they should be in completely within the next 1-2 months. Hopefully in time for the Lake City show in January.

    Of course, none of the kids in showmanship are mine, but I thought they were so precious!!

    I was there around 11 and looked for you but could not find you. I talked with peepsbunnies i think is her name. Her real name is Lisa and she has Silkies and show girls. I really did look for your daughter and did not see you and i agree about the call ducks. The geese were not as bad as last year....There were no Cayugas I am really thinking about entering my drake. I wish I knew how to register to show him. He is beautiful...any way enough about that..

    I was there. :] I did senior showmanship, I was the one with the massive brahma breaking her back as she waited. Yeah.

    I had a great time, and didn't get anything less than RV. :]
    My Wynny banty took best of breed and my Brahma took her class in GC and reserve class for CF. Other birds did well also. This was youth of course. ;] I took care of Susan Nichols birds as well. And they did superb.

    You are right about those dang Calls. They sound like they are laughing at you. It's enough to drive a person mad!
