Garden State Bird Show Elizabeth NJ
It reminds me of once when I judged type at the Chicago show, a gibber (naked breast and legs and all) had very good position on the perch and all day long whenever I glanced at him he immediately assumed the correct position. And on that day I made the gibber best in show! Like the gibber, I will never forget this recessive white!
I originally met him at the National Cage Bird Show this year and when I learned he had Borders for sale, I followed him to his room to see what I might be able to purchase and purchased a number of them. I had a feeling there might be more but he assured me that was all the Borders he had for sale.
The following day, he came up to me and confessed that his conscience was really bothering him. He did have two more hens when I looked over the borders and made my purchase yesterday, but he had carefully hide them under the bed so I would not see them as he knew I would want them too. Of course they were the best of the lot and yes, to clear his conscience, he let me buy them too!
This is a great club and show, friendly members, great hospitality (luncheon Portuguese buffet was fabulous!) and fabulous birds to die for!
