I'm not the biggest fan of muscovys but that lavender one looks fantastic. Is this colour common and did that bird do any good in the prizes?

Yes the lavender girl the colour was to die for wondered how I could stuff in the boxes on pick up next week.She did not place.
Dont know who owns her believe every year the same person has them there.
Toh says numbers are down from last year have to agree there werent a great selection of other ducks.
Would I do this again maybe not because you have AOC classes it makes it hard.
This judge likes big so my birds are still young
But I was happy got 2nd with my female she was bronze and 3rd with male BB got first with Bronze /?white photo 16 Toh got second with his bronze /black white winged photo 7
So need to work out plan of acquiring that lavender results book wont get to next week so until then have no idea.

Great pics. I'm hoping to visit the show on Monday. Would like to buy a day old duckling. Would they have some?? Have three 4 week old Khaki Campbells. Interesting colours still, and not sure if they're ducks or drakes... :)

No there will be no ducklings at the show.
Could ask Michael Holmes he will most probably be in the office part if he knows anyone who has KC ducklings at present he knows most of what the waterfowl people have :)

The lav muzzie definitely was gorgeous... I spent most of my day in the dog show or the petting zoo but it was probably the nicest looking lavender muzzie I've ever seen in person or in pictures.

Of course, what did my darling son do the entire time in the petting zoo? Play with the calves, kids or piglets or other creatures we don't have here? Noooo... he parked himself in the chook area and caught chooks for all the city kids and adults who were too scared to nab a itty bitty pekin. :roll: Should have hired him out...
