Judges’ Comments –   It was a pleasure to see so many birds presented for judging at Callington Show.  The majority of birds were well prepared and used to being handled.  At this time of year, the breeding season is in full swing and therefore both male and female birds usually show feather damage.  The most outstanding exhibit was a large Old English Game Blue Red Male – a good example of its breed, beautifully presented and a joy to judge.
