    Oh boo! Making me jealous, huh?? LOL

    Did they have a lot of stuff for sale at the show today? They usually do! I have always wanted a pair of blues like yours, but never had the money! Very nice!

    They are both gorgeous birds!!! Thanks for sharing pics of them with us! WOW! Now I might have to get some of those! [​IMG]

    I have been showing the pictures of your birds off to all of my family members and I had to add that my 10 year-old son said, "That rooster is so beautiful that he could win a conest. The hen is too!" I thought that was so cute, I had to share it! [​IMG]

    Edited to add my sons comments!
