Question! Will be my first year to attend OPB! Super excited but as a newbie hobbiest and breeder.... Will I be laughed out of the show ring if I bring some of my birds for fun??

I know this is a very elite show with top breeders and birds from across the country. I am very aware my flock has lots of growing pains, and sadly it seems my best birds are moulting as we speak! I do have some young imperfect birds which I'm letting mature to see if they improve and even younger (5-6months) birds which are looking stellar but are they to young to bother?

I'm really just excited for the experience and not expecting ribbons! I would even love to make contacts to begin improving my line with new birds. I just don't want to offend anyone bringing birds who will wilt in competition compared to what I imagine is there or have judges upset by a waste in time.

Either way I'm coming!

I was absolutely terrified my first time and still am this year (moulting birds, I hear you). I learnt so much from other breeders and it was worth it going just to see the lovely birds that are there. Don't miss this one.

We are all in the same boat with molting and maturing. Its been that kind of year. All of the above comments are great advise. We all walk before we run.. and the people are what makes the difference. We are not so much elite ( we do get some big names from across the country and beyond) more over we strive to be a people friendly / learning experience type of show. What we strive for anyway.... The cooler weather we are currently experiencing will make a big difference in the all the birds over the next 3 weeks. 5 1/2 -6 month bird is usually pretty close to being where they need to be and with the cooler temps ( as I call it feather pushing weather) miracles can happen over night or over a course of a few days. Looking forward to meeting many from this site and rekindling old friendships ,....see you there!

Best of luck to everyone going to the show and have fun. I was hoping to make the trip to the show to check it out but family visiting that weekend, and I will probably still be on crutches. Hopefully next year.
