Only one thing puzzles me.   How did you know he was going to win BB on a Blue wheaten male?  I mean, what are the chances of that?  Do I smell collusion?!!   ;D ;D ;D

Can't believe there was no reaction to that.   It's a joke folks!!!


  ;D ;D ;D

You didn't wait long enough Mike...not everyone wakes up and joking at the crack of morn....
As for Brown Red bantams, I bought a pair from the Townsends.  They are 4 months old and
so still growing.

Neil and Donna?   I wonder where they got them, as they have never shown them at the national?  You sure it was not wheatens?

Housing, Health & Hatching / Re: Leg bands?

I haven't tried them but I imagine you would have to be pretty accurate on sizing - I've had those spiral bands grow into legs and it's not pretty.

I put zip wing bands on chicks when I move them from the incubator to the brooder. They work well for permanent ID because they stay on for years - out of about 700 I've put on, less than ten come off, almost all because of human error in applying them. But it's a pain to catch the bird and dig through feathers to read them, so I use butt-end aluminum bands on the breeders (I try to match up the last two numbers when I can so that 2083 becomes 83 unless I happen to already have an 83 of the same variety).

Well it looks like Illinois has hoops for out of state entries, that's no good for a National Meet in my eyes  :-\

Thank you Rebbeca the hat is gorgeous, i saw it fitting that the winning Blue Wheaten cash award be donated back to the club for it. It must of took quite some time to get all those beads sewn on  :o. Not to mention to arrange them in a way to make an outstanding picture of an Ameraucana. I will get some close up pictures of it so everyone can see the detail and talent it took to make it.

And here it is...
