Breeding / Re: Breeding Silvers, Red Leakage in Males
« Last post by Suki Paolini on June 26, 2017, 05:04:56 PM »
I maintain two lines...one for boys and the other for hens.  I do this as many of the cock lines do not have salmon in the breast, so I save those that do for the girls lines.  I have learnt over 3 years that the Silver Boys are robuster i.e. hens and cocks.  This has been problematic.  OTOH, I finally have a very tame set that fly to hand when called.  It's been slow.

After looking my grow out pens over it is safe to say I will have a pair of Blue Bantams and a pair of Black Bantams I will donate for the silent auction. They may end up being trios if all goes well, not to say these will be my only donations  ;)

Exhibiting, Promoting & Club Notes / The BIG job swap or musical chairs
« Last post by John W Blehm on June 17, 2017, 11:43:08 AM »
In some recent emails, Gina said “My capacity is maxed out.  Maybe we need a new secretary?” and “Again - I apologize - but I am at (and over) capacity.” 
I have always maintained that personal lives and responsibilities should come before any chicken club volunteer work. So, here is what we did.
I resigned as President of the Alliance.  Beth was selected President by the remaining Board members.  Gina then resigned as Secretary/Treasurer and the Board selected me as Sec/Treasurer and Gina to as Director to fill the position created when Beth became President.  We stuck to the procedures outlined in our Constitution in making the changes.  ;)

As of now...
President - Beth
Sec/Treasurer - John
Directors - Jensen & Gina in charge of Club Meets and Jeannette & Russ in charge of Promotions.

I don't have a number for you just yet, but I've been saving my receipts and the money the club owes me for postage and mailing supplies I'm going to donate for awards. I'll let you know when I have it added up.

Exhibiting, Promoting & Club Notes / 2017 National Awards

I would like to start a thread for our 2017 National awards, better yet kick it off with a $100 donation to go towards youth Bantam varieties. John do you remember if all the awards were given out last year? If so put $10 per BV of all youth Bantams entered and the remainder to BB Bantam Youth thanks. I will send it by pay pal today thanks

I see in this months issue of the poultry press there is an eastern Kentucky poultry association hosting its second annual fall show, but nothing about a bluegrass poultry association??
