Holy Cr*p

Recommended Posts

Just gotta have a little brag after attending the RBC Annual Show.

 

Those of you who have followed my breeding journal over our last breeding season will know Holy Cr*p and his brother Holy Sh*t. Named in this manner as this is what I said when I saw them feathering up in the nest box...... well today Holy Cr*p (the little star) went BIS at the RBC Annual Show - okay is wasn't the biggest show in the world but there was another strong open breeder present so he did have some competition. In fact I was unsure that he really should have won until I saw him strutt his stuff and really show himself off and then I felt his place at the top was very justified so I am one very happy birdie mum.

 

I couldn't get a terrific shot of him today due to the crappy lighting and him not really showing off, but here he is.

I also attended the show with my first crop of youngsters. Been a good 7 years since I put a bird on the bench and stuffed up the cage sticker. I took all UBC's and forgot about it and put young bird class no's on. Gina comes over and asks "so did you put them all in UBC". :D Oh dear! So it is then decided to leave them as is cause it don't really matter anyhow and reclass the best one, an Opaline hen, in the UBC class. The judges bless em had realised some twit (namely myself) had obviously stuffed up and were prepared to reclass them but they weren't allowed too. Oh well. As I said didn't really matter as being UBC's they can't go any further than a win in their respective classes.

 

Gina did have some strong competition and the Grey did aquite himself very well indeed. :rofl: Congrats to the G & G stud.

 

There were some very nice rare varieties shown on the day with some super Lacewings and a very nice Recessive Pied. A good contingent of Clearwings and Fallows.

 

It was a good show, lovely day out and some super eats provided for the hungry travellers.
