Here are some photos from the Los Angeles Pigeon Club 2008 Young Bird Lawn show which was held today. I really enjoyed all the birds and getting to visit a bit with some of our Pigeon-Talk members. If I knew (or thought I knew :p) what kind of pigeon was in each photo, I put the breed in the caption. If I was clueless, then there is just a photo #. Please feel free to "fill in the blanks" or correct any errors I have made, certainly to comment on the birds .. there are some gorgeous ones!

Enjoy!

Terry,
eye candy is exactly what they all are! Beautiful birds!

You don't seem to have 10, 21, and (76/77) labelled.
# 21- Looks like a beautiful Satinette to me.Old Fashion/Oriental Fill
#10 and 76/77...Also seem to be Old Fashion/Oriental Fills.... I can't tell though if they are Blindinettes, Satinettes....or called something else. Normally, if I have it right, it has to do with markings...that's what the difference is.
These frills, appear to be the type that a foster parent would be needed. They have very small beaks.
If someone could find out about #10 and (76/77) it'd be awsome. I don't know a lot about the types...still trying to learn. It seems most people that breed them don't want to talk to others or just to me about them. Most of my info I get is from online...which isn't always correct. Once my loft is up and going, I'm going to have an area just for the Frills. I love them ;).

Anyways, back on the pigeons.

Also #11...that cutie pie also looks like one to me....just because of the beak and feet....along with those eyes. Could be wrong, but sure is a cutie!

#13 looks like a Bokhara Trumpeter...I hope i spelled that right. :)

Wow Terry, you took terrific pictures. I just love those Scandaroons. It was a really nice day except I got drafted into being the club secretary.:eek:

The birds were simply beautiful.

Gaditano Pouter

They where indeed all very pretty birds, but I do need to know what you mean by not natural colors on the Gaditano Pouter?. I had to laugh when I realized that could be my daughters bird, they have the same hair color. I did not know you could dye your bird. help me on this one >Kevin

That is not a Gaditano pouter. Gaditanos have a very large balloon crop. That is a thief pigeon they are called Picas and are dyed so you can tell the birds apart in competitions.

Thanks for sharing Terry, and thank you Grim for explaining the difference between Gaditanos and Picas.

I think #10 is a Blondinetter. #12 looks like a Chinese Owl. #12 looks like a Satinette. #40 looks like a Long Face English Tumbler. #48 looks like a Show Racer. That's what I think. :rolleyes:
Great pictures by the way. We don't have any shows like that around here, that I know of. :(

Here's The Champion Of Champions From The 2008 Show

I think I have a pic of this bird but it is very dark and doesn't do the bird justice. It's a West Of England Tumbler .. Same breed as my Darth Vader who is a self black.

Terry

Description: Doug Boyland's red self West was judged by Brian McCormick as champion West and by a panel to be the best of the best all breed champions competing at our annual LAPC Summer YB Show.
Congratulations Doug.
