Probably the most exciting young birds we have kept are our group of young Sebastopols. After our first year breeding Overton birds, we decided to keep about 20 young birds and grow out. All of our extras will be for sale at the Ohio National in November.
We already have some Fall shows under our belt also! Our first show was the Wisconsin International Poultry Show. The show was set-up beautifully, ran smoothly, and their was a TON of quality waterfowl. I believe the goose numbers were some where around 130! Gary Overton judged the Medium Goose class and chose one of our Young Sebastopol Ganders to be Champion Medium. We entered one goose in the Junior show (American Buff Hen), and she won Champion Goose Overall. Our little Pastel Call Hen won another BV honor in a large, quality Pastel class.
Our Salmon Faverolle Large Fowl seem to be on a role also... We have had Champion Continental at every show so far this year. I am really looking forward to seeing how well they do at the Ohio National with some more competition in their breed.
With one more thought, I will wrap this little blog up- I AM DREADING WINTER ALREADY!
Thanks for reading & keep checking for updates on our upcoming breeding season!
