    Hi everybody! I would love to get some feedback from some more experienced Delaware fans. All of my Dels are about 5 1/2 mos old. I took these pics right before I lost the sunlight today; the birds were not posing very well so they aren't the best but are my birds headed in the right direction for SQ? I've never had any interest in showing my birds but this is my first year owning Dels and I really like them! So far their personality and appearance have made me a huge fan. Also, for those of you who do show, how much work is involved in prepping them for show, what do you do, any tips/tricks/do's or don'ts.

    Thanks so much in advance! :)

    can't give you much from these pictures. If you could get closer, put one bird in each frame & try to get them with their heads up. One thing I am noticing is try appear pinched in the tail.
