Ameraucana Marketplace / ISO - 2019 LF Chicks
« Last post by Kathy Davis on Today at 12:52:54 AM »
I am hoping to get on someoneís 2019 LF chick shipping list.

Top of my list is to buy more lavender and/or buff chicks. I bought some this year from John Blehm and am very happy with them. They are beautiful, healthy, and hearty. (Thank you, John! I really appreciate your good work and the guidance you gave me.)

I am also interested in any other LF varieties, as well. Besides lavender and buff, I have black, blue, and silver, have a special hankering for wheaten, especially blue wheaten, and any colors I donít yet have.

Please let me know if you plan to ship chicks in the spring and if you have room for another customer.

I currently have a few other breeds but Ameraucana are my first love and by next year, may be my only breed.

Thanks much,
Kathy

I was just looking at their show catalog and it states...

Open Show Judging begins as Junior Show is concluded

It is hard to believe the main event...the only show sanctioned by the APA/ABA...takes a backseat to special unofficial competition.  When placing our Ameraucana National Meet at their show it was understood to be judged 1st as national meets are normally done.
I had recently heard they put their Jr competition 1st, but didn't want to think things had gotten that bad.  Many of the youth and thier parents, that aren't into showing, assume they are supposed to be in a "Junior Show" and don't understand they can be in the "real" show and be entitled to the same points and awards as everyone else.  Many/most jr shows don't even use licensed judges while charging the same entry fee as for the open show.  Having "specials" for junior competition above and beyound whatever is offfered in an open show is the way to go and "specials" aren't anything new...they are offered for any reason the donor decides.

The show catalog and entry form is now available for our national meet hosted by the Wisconsin International Poultry Club.   They handle club business with a Facebook account.   Here is a link:   https://www.facebook.com/groups/wisconsininternational/

Please note all entries must be postmarked by September 11th.

Our Alliance awards list can be found in the catalog just before the entry form.   Note also there will be a special plaque to commemorate our 40th anniversary as a club.   The plaque is in the shape of the state of Wisconsin, and will be awarded to the best parti-colored bantam.   That one award did not get listed in the catalog.   It should be noted that we started out as a bantam-only club in 1978.

Okay.   I'm looking for a bantam Silver cockerel with decent coloring.  I may be able to get one from Bob Walchak out of your stock.

John, do you know at this point what you might have available at Portage?

If anything I may have some extra pairs of LF buffs and a pair of LF brown reds (the cockerel has too much red in his breast, but they may make a nice breeding pair).  I'll bring several other birds to sell that are spoken for.

I sold 32 more culls today and I'm down to "pretty much" just the birds I want to keep for myself and use as breeders next year, plus several that I plan to sell at Portage.
I put the possible show birds in individual coops.  This show is earlier than I would like for a national meet and I'm hoping the birds will fill out and grow feathers.  I believe most of us will share those same concerns, but we complain about the birds molting or just not being in condition even with shows later in the fall.   ;)
Here are some of the LF cockerels we sorted thru this week.

I would like to request a meet.    October 2018....Missouri State Poultry Association.    This was always an ABC meet and did well.

This is not the place to request a meet, but it is the place to publicize a meet once one has been placed.   To request a meet, send me an email with
the name and date(s) of the show and the show secretary's name and contact information.  Also the names of at least three exhibitors who will be showing Ameraucanas.   My email is:  Chantecler7@gmail.com .  Thanks.
