Exhibiting, Promoting & Club Notes / Meet Requests - Ameraucana Alliance
« Last post by Michael Muenks on January 20, 2021, 09:34:37 AM »
A gentle reminder to Ameraucana Alliance club members that meet requestsfor spring meets need to be in prior to the publication of the spring newsletter which is published in early March.

If you are planning to request a meet for a poultry show in March, April, May, or June . . . now is the time to request it!

The meet request form may be found at http://ameraucana.org/DnLd/Meet%20Request.pdf.

Have a great day and happy hatching.

Breeding / Re: Improving LF buff Ameraucanas
« Last post by John W Blehm on January 19, 2021, 02:18:08 PM »
This was a big hatch for my LF buff project.
26 LF buff cock over LF black X LF buff laced Polish chicks hatched.  I kept 2 that look buff, although they don't have the proper shack color. 
36 LF buff cock over LF black X bantam buff chicks hatched.  I kept 3 that with the best buffish color.
The "rejects" will be sold locally as Easter Eggers.

For those of you who have not yet joined us on MeWe, here is a link to an article reporting an interview with the founder of MeWe.  Aside from the obviously editorialized intro, it explains pretty well their business philosophy and the stark difference between it and Facebook.  As an aside, as of this morning, January 18th, we are now up to 87 members and growing every day.   With no drama by the way.   Here is the link to that article.    https://apnews.com/article/donald-trump-media-social-media-acc77e2afbad87da884345565385ca1c

The board of directors has voted and the majority voted to make the MeWe site an Alliance site.
Due to a lack of confidence, by most of the board members, in my leadership of the Alliance and other issues I will resign as president effective at noon, on February 23rd.

I saw this last night and was floored. John, I hope you will rethink this. You have led the Alliance (and before that the ABC) through many years. You have made solid decisions and had the foresight to create a web presence for the club. I think it was one of the first (or THE first) Breed Club site.

No group of people will ALWAYS agree on EVERYTHING, that does not mean we don't respect and listen and sometimes still disagree or agree.

I, personally, have confidence in your leadership, and think this is not the time for you to step down.


Amen, Becky, amen.   Thanks for speaking up.

In case anyone here did not get the news, Royce has resigned as a director, and Jeff Sonsalla has been appointed to take his place.

Here is an update on our MeWe.com Ameraucana Alliance discussion group.    We are now up to 84 members, with lots of topics and discussion.   Unlike Fazebook, you are free to post for sale and wanted notices.   This can be done right within our Alliance group without going elsewhere on MeWe.      To those of you who have not yet joined us over there, please do so!    Once you set up your MeWe account (very easy) go to the Groups icon on the toolbar near the top of your screen.  Then click on "See All Groups", or "Browse."    Just scroll down until you find us and click on it.   You will then need to request to join, which either Mindy or myself will approve.    Or you can also do a Search for Ameraucana Alliance.    See you over there!

I like that it has both grain and animal by products (meal). The animal based meal my be just a little bit, but at least it is in there.

Nope, I don't do pills to individual chickens - too much time and bother for me.   But here is the feed analysis from the All Flock pellet I'm using.  It runs about $13 to a little under $15 per 50# bag, depending upon whether or not it is on sale - which is quite often.   I have been getting reasonable production, good fertility, and pretty good hatchability.   You may have to enlarge the attached photo to be able to read it.   Is it missing anything?
