It took 25 years for the Port Lincoln Young Bird Show to return to the roots of its origin but it's finally happened, and it was very well supported with almost 300 pigeons and more than 40 ducks, chooks etc for the judges to peruse. Since I've received no correspondence for the chooks and most of the fancies, I will go with what I've been given and personally know the results of.
Many thanks to our judge in Mr Peter Harvey, a former Port Lincoln man now living in Adelaide who did a very good job overall considering he had to judge all of the classes on his own, gave good feedback on why a certain bird was better than the one alongside it and so on, and he has his own ideas on the standard we strive to achieve to this day-thanks Peter!
