    Wow, those are some stunning birds! I wouldn't mind owning any one of them! (I really like the last one... just, wow!)

    Which bird was your favorite at the show, Justino, or can you pick just one?

    Yes! Yes! Always go on Saturday!

    That third to last bird (blue silver duckwing bantam araucana pullet) is my girl. It's not an accepted color (and, indeed, it was an accident!), but the judge said she had really good type. *does the happy dance*

    She's going to Stockton as well.

    Anyway, I was there but selling birds all day (mortgage crisis forces major sale) and I think I got to meet our fearless leader! ?? Is that right? Wearing a "chillin' with my peeps" shirt. I love going to shows. It's the only place where no one minds me talking about chickens or genetics!

    Hollister is always a beautiful show. The people who put it on work so hard to make it nice for everyone. It's the only show where I'm sure my bantam Phoenix boys will get a double coop and my Polish boys will get a large coop. Their attention to detail and their friendly attitude always makes it my favorite show.

    After banty's comments, I'm really wishing I didn't miss it! I was going to wear my 'My Pet Makes Me Breakfast' shirt. And what a pretty girl your pullet is.
