Well of the 40 handout sheets I printed 20 were taken.  Talked to one fellow for about 15 minutes and he got my contact information he seemed quite interested in them.  Gail and I saw they judge as he approached the EO's and you could see him mouth the name and then raise his eyebrows!! :shock:  Gail asked him if he would like to see the SOP and he said no it's fine, then he came over to us and asked what was the proper leg colour??  We said yellow :whistle:
The show was from 8-2, I left at 2:00 as I had been up since 3:00am (2hr, drive) the judges were still judging the standards so I did not stay to talk to any judges.  Not sure if Gail did??  Saw lots of familiar faces as well.  :thumbsup:

Re: Sarnia Poultry & Pigeon Show

Thanks for the photo tour Paula!

You know what's really encouraging? It doesn't sound like any of the EOs taken to this show or the Oxford show have been DQed. That's a great start as it means you guys haven't missed any sneaky traits.

How did your TPCs do?

Re: Sarnia Poultry & Pigeon Show

Sorry PG I am sooooo slow at loading pictures from photosmucket.  I haven't mastered loading them all at once so I do it one at a time :oops: 

There were only Millie Fleur D'uccles there and there was just two pairs, one pair was entered in the Juniors.  Lots of empty cages, people didn't come because of the storm.  I know the Quebec group didn't show up.  The roads weren't bad when I drove in, some spots of hard packed ice but the day turned out to be beautiful and sunny and the roads were great by the time I headed back home.

Re: Sarnia Poultry & Pigeon Show

Your little pullet looks like a real sweetly. Does she have vulture hocks I just can't see?

Paula, my miracle baby from you is hilarious. For awhile she was challenging me like a rooster. I moved her into the pen with another pullet she doesn't know last week and now she is the biggest suck ever running to me as I am less scary than her new roommate.

Anyway...back to EOs...what were the judges and public's comments?

Re: Sarnia Poultry & Pigeon Show

Oh the pullet has attitude for sure, she does have the hocks but not as big as the roo.   She is not like my Violet who loves to be held and rest on my arm or shoulder.  This one pecks you when you try to pick her up and then squawks once you have her.  She is Violets daughter but I think she has more of her Father (Jiminy's) personality, that's why I don't have him anymore :whistle: and Big Foot AKA Snowshoe has taken his place.  Maybe your little girl from gets it from him too, little stinker, LOL.   Big Foot is a good boy, I have never bathed a chicken so he was my first as his feet were so poopy.  I put him in the laundry tub and blow dried him, he LOVED it!!

Well I didn't talk to the judge other than when he came over to ask the leg colour, he was still judging and your not supposed to talk to them until they are finished :huh:  I left at 2:00 but Gail was still there so I am not sure if she spoke with him at all???  I really only talked to the one fellow in length but a couple other people just commented on how they loved the barring on the roosters :love:  and quite a few people stopped to read the bio sheets I made up.  Thanks to one of Claire's article's that I got all the information from because there wasn't much when I googled EO's most of it was linked to this forum or Claire's articles!!

Re: Sarnia Poultry & Pigeon Show

:cheer::cheer:  You all are so Awesome for all this work promoting EO's.  The only drawback I have seen at all since stumbeling on to them is the great big wall our governments built between us so we can't exchange birds or eggs.  I have always heard that if you put in the effort....It will be rewarded.  You guys and gals deserve a GIANT HUG and "THANK YOU'  :applause::applause:


I have to keep reminding myself... "It is The Standard of Perfection...NOT the Standard of Quantity that we are striving for..."

Re: Sarnia Poultry & Pigeon Show

I never got talking to the judge afterwards, I wanted to but everyone else wanted to talk to him as well and I couldn't get near and then he was gone. I should have just pushed in I guess and I really wanted to thank him as he is also a veterinarian and I had to interrupt his judging to get him to look at my hen( a silver spangled hamburg that took best of breed ) she seemed to just go down and looked really ill I was afraid she was going to die. He did mouth to mouth(beak) on her ,checked her over and told me he thought the show was stressing her out and to take her out and put her somewhere quiet or she may have a heart attack.  I took her out,  when I got her home she had recovered and ate some treats I gave her. Needless to say no more shows for her. Sorry guys!

Re: Sarnia Poultry & Pigeon Show

Oh Gail I am glad to hear your Hamburg hen is fine, I was going to email you today to see how she was.  Poor girl, too much stress for her.

What time was the show over as he was still judging when I left.?? I just couldn't stay any longer I was beat and because it was so cold and damp there in the morning my poor knees and back were killing me.
It was fun and I did enjoy it, have gone to shows as an observer this is the first time to participate.  I have a real appreciation now for all the work that goes into them :thumbs:
