Leading Rares at the 2006 Specialist & Rares Show
Photos by Terry A Tuxford

Margaret Dark judged the 99 Rares, which was an increase from last year due to the extra classes for the Rainbow and Easley clearbody.

The adult winner went to a well proportional Texas Clearbody light green hen of Geoff Tilson, a bird of good stance and condition. The runners up were the Norris’s Easley Clearbody grey green cock of good length but lacking in condition. Paul McGrath was third with a Texas Clearbody grey hen of quality and staged in good condition apart from a missing spot.

Gren & Pat Norris were the winners of the young bird certificate (and best Rare overall) with a wide headed Easley Clearbody light green cock of wide shoulders. A slate hen of good length and depth of mask from Bob Allen was second followed by Les Cutler’s smart Texas Clearbody oplaine light green hen staged in good condition.

Best English Fallow, Mrs. J. Hill; best German Fallow, R.J. Allen; best Slate, D. Mullee; best Easley Clearbody, G. & P. Norris; best Texas Clearbody, G. J. Tilson; best Rainbow, M. Anzara; best Saddleback, Mrs. J. Hill.
