Showing fearless aggressive Pouters


I am wondering if I could get some comments on showing Pouters that are fearless and aggressive towards the judge. I have a Gaditano that is the meanest most aggressive sucker! Every time I put my hand near him he tries to kill me. My wife is afraid of him. I have had him even attack me while I am carrying him. He's quite the character. To me it's charming but I am wondering how a judge would react to such behavior? Thing is, he's my best bird.

I also have a Horseman like this. When I showed him, he always drew a crowd because he was entertaining to the public trying to bite everyone that walked by. But I never seen a judges reaction.

Comments?

   Shouldn't be a problem at all! Any judge familiar with the breed, should and will expect it. Most if not all judges would rather have a bird do that than freak out in the show pen climbing the walls.
   How old is the bird? I find that young birds From the age of three months to about eight months go through a "terrible twos" period. Most calm down some. I have a Marchenero cоck the same way. Would love to rip my arm off! I'll surely be showing him! A wonderful blue light grizzle.

Lucifer,

He's about 2 years old.

Are you a Pouter judge?

Re: Showing fearless aggressive Pouters


Alan do you remember the "Pouter Man" judge the one year at the Tucson Show? From what I heard he put on quite a show as much the pouters.

I spoke with him about the Gaditanos, he says the birds should be driving you out of the show cage as they are the most aggressive Pouter breed. He showed me what I should be seeing. The birds were latching on to his finger & trying to push him out. I believe it was one of your birds actually. The birds weren't too aggressive about it , he said he expected more , but it was the 3rd day of the show & they were ready to go home!

If all my Gads were like Miami, I would say they are the most aggressive pigeon even topping the Modena. I find the aggressiveness enduring, it's different than a Modena. I want Miami's aggressiveness bred through out my line I really think that is a key thing missing in my birds now.

My girls really enjoy Miami, but I'm always telling them to be careful as I having a strutting board just above the waist line, right at their head level. Miami will get you from behind, pull your hair & bite the back of your arm if you ignore him.

Alan, Pouters are a performing breed contrary to what a lot of people might believe. I like an aggressive bird because it shows that they are healthy and they are in a sense performing. Of course the other variables have to be there as well.

Thanks Gary!

I agree with you, Pouters should perform even in the show cage. I guess that's why I like them so much. I like performance type animals, even my dogs are performance bred. It makes them so much more interesting.

In judging pouters, it's more than just a bird blowing. In Brunners like I have, they blow, bop up and down and do a dance. I love it.
