    Well, I ended up leaving my birds to show at home (note to self: don't try again to wait to the last minute and think that you are going to get Polish crests clean the day before a show), but I did bring some Cuckoo Marans eggs and my sweet hens won grand champion of the egg contest! [​IMG] cdeans just told me. I left before they judged it, my toddler was just about done for the day by 1:00. [​IMG]

    [email protected]@2four, very cool video! Thanks for sharing.

    Congrats to everyone. [​IMG] Next time I will have to try to find more BYCers. What show is next, Frederick? Does anyone do any of the VPBA shows?

  2. Congrats, Chrunchie!

    I remember the toddler days. [​IMG] LOL love them, but wow, exhausting, and such a roller coaster. Happy, miserable. Calm, spazzing. [​IMG]

    Quote:You know what I want? Some bantam modern games. Hysterical looking little dinosaur birds!! Ohmagosh, so funny. I'd never seen one in person. Even my husband (the non-bird person in the family) thought they were cool.

    Well, winning the egg contest is just as honorable [​IMG]
    Good for you!

    Does anyone know who won the show? I thought that bantam barred plymouth rock had it all.

    Crunchie-you have worked very hard for that with your years of selective breeding and probably no one deserved it more. A big thank you from the Cuckoos!! Holding their own.. (0:

    Quote:Thank you--but I have a lot more years to go. [​IMG] I've been doing this for a few years, there's quite a few folks out there who have been working with these guys much longer. But I think it is so cool that it was Cuckoos that won! [​IMG] My egg color is ok, good for Cuckoos, but there were definitely darker eggs there than mine (black coppers and wheatens and blues, definitely darker). But they judged it on a lot of other stuff besides color, too. It is actually very interesting, all of the other criteria they judge them on. It would have been interesting to hang around and see what the judge had to say.
