New to pigeons - recently bought my first pair of blue-shield blue-barred Old German Owls [from Danny Joe].

First off, the hen laid her first egg. Really excited and hoping things go well.

My actual question: what do people do to prep pigeons for shows? With poultry there seem to be so many ins-and-outs with diet and conditioning pens. Pigeons, to my knowledge, seem much simpler, especially because they aren't going around dust-bathing in partially wet "dust," lol. Any show prepping tips from y'all??

Any help is great :D

I am not sure about specific show preperations for OGO, but with my pouters I work with them in my show pens prior to the season beginning. It is important that the birds are calm when in the pens and that they are familiar with being handled. A flighty bird will typically be DQ'd so that it does not disrupt the judging of the remaining birds. Best Regards, Charlie
