I've just come back from the B.S. Show in Doncaster, the Best in Show is Les Martin's Grey Green cock (I think its the Best YB in Show from last year). On a more personal note my Pied is the winner of the Dominant Pied YB CC. Wayheyyyy!

I was up stairs watching Brian Sweeting's seminar, part of which included some pics of his Dominant Pieds bred this year. This was the point where I thought my pied had no chance as these birds were in the middle of some that he said he brought to the show. Never mind, plenty of time in the next decade or so.

At the end of the seminar we trooped down to watch the top awards being judged. The Any Age CC winners were on one side and the Young Bird CC winners on the other. My eyesight is no longer brilliant and I couldn't see any pied in the YB group. After about half an hour of not looking, I suddenly saw a green pied on the YB side and James Theobald told it was from the beginner section. Long story short (involving the fact that I couldn't remember the cage number), when the show finally opened at 3 p.m., I saw that it was mine!
