I have decided to go if I possibly can, meaning hope I feel like it after Wed. Plan on showing two black 9 month old cockerels and 1 blue cockerel. Charles I need to call you since you are going to be there and get your boy to you instead of Newnan.

Headed out tomorrow. Imogene and I are going. Will have a few black cockerels and 2 blue cockerels for sell. They are all just turning 9 months old. Will have a few really nice bantam cornish for sell too.

Darlene HObbs won Champion English with a very nice Black Cockerel. I won Reserve Champion English with a younger black cockerel.
Trisha I understand the winner was from your flock. Makes you feel like your winning yourself when someone shows something you have put an effort in to produce along the line and they win. Congratulations Darlene. I will get a pic up soon.
24 LF Orps shown and there were some really nice birds there. Matt Ulrich had some really nice buffs and it was great to meet so many nice breeders and visit with them.
Nava congrats on the BV Blue cockerel
Charles Logan showed a really good looking Black Bantam cockerel that really liked. I will look up the name of the young man that won the Junior division with a blue hen. I don't think he is a UOC member but I am going to encourage him to join.

Here is Darlenes winner
Also met Matt Ulrich and his Father. They really nice people. He won BV with a buff cockerel that was gorgeous and the largest I have seen. I can't imagine how large he will be by next year. He had a very wide breast.
Matt I apologise for a poor pic of your nice bird. This doesn't do him justice.
Here is Charles Logan's Black bantam cockerel
Look at the width on this little man. I just think it is awesome
Julie, thank you for the kind words... I really enjoyed meeting and visiting with you. It was great to see a nice group of Orpingtons at Lake City. I was really impressed with the Blacks and Blues that were there. I hope to see you guys at Newnan.
