- [Woman] It's like the Westminster of the chickens. - All the best breeders are here. They all bring their best birds. - They're nitpicking everything. It's the eye color, it's the feather quality, it's the wings, the feet, the toes, it's the whole package. - We have a written description of every feather, what it's exactly supposed to be. - I've studied my standard of perfection time and time and time again. - I've been called obsessive which, you know, I wouldn't go that far but-- - I'm a hatch-o-holic, they call me that because I hatch a lot of chicks. - The male stands right there and flaps his wings and says, "You want a piece of me? "You want a piece of me?" - He didn't like her a bit. What can you do to bump up from third place to first? - Some hold grudges against other birds and never forget how mean another bird was and others are best friends. - Looks like I'm gonna get fertility outta that one. - He invites them to dinner. Bawk, bawk, bawk. - He puts his wing out and it's something like this and then the girls just kinda like know to just drop it. - If ever there was a more perfect subject, I never had one. Still, it was like Paris Hilton. - This would be pretty serious if I won the whole thing. - I didn't come here to lose. Look at you, you're a warrior.
