    I showed Star(Red Star), Gertrude(BR), and Peaches(BO).
    Star won 2nd in breed and 2nd in variety.
    Gertrude won 1st in breed, 1st in variety, and champion in breed.
    Peaches won the same as Gertrude.

    Star was against a top quality Red Star hen [​IMG] sooo she lost, but they were the only two of that breed so she got 2nd.

    Gertrude was against a big'ol rooster, but he wasn't exactly show quality...or clean. So she beat him easy.

    Peaches was the only one of her breed so she automatically won!!!

    Peaches and Gertrude went to the best in show judging, but they lost...

    Me and Peaches did our trick of her climbing on my shoulder, staying as I walk to the show cage, then jumping in the cage after we got there. It went off without a hitch! But the exit went bad, she freaked out and jumped down my back...

    Many people looked over my birds, petting them, holding them, even taking pictures of me and Peaches.

    The girls did good, I had fun, they pooped in their water 4 times, in all... a good night.
  2. Hi! Congratulations! Way to go!
    Glad you had fun with the girls.
