Hurricane Silkies & Tolbunt Polish ~ Hurdle Mills, NC
Pics from left: Grace the white pullet won RV in her first show, losing only to our other white pullet Ida. Victor the man -- our blue cock out of Indigo Eggs and Bobbi Porto. Next up are Claudette with Grace. Claudette was a little large, but she won BV and RV several times during the fall and spring shows of 2009/10. In the fourth pic is Claudette standing in front of Bill, my beautiful white boy who was stunning and amazing looking but lacked type and wasn't considered by the judges. The highest he ever placed was 1st in Variety. But to me he was so beautiful and manly. The girls thought so, too! Next is Rose, my blue hen. She was infuriatingly broody and had a habit of looking her worst when shows came along. Still, she won BB, RB, BV, and RV several times. She was such a good momma that wins just weren't that important to her -- or to us. :) Some chicks from a Claudette/Henri hatching. A chick with splayed legs -- but he looked too cute in this photo and I smile whenever I look a it!
