I would take issue with the description of the female lobe color - for pretty obvious reasons.   It does not match up with the APA Standard description for all the other varieties.  The ABA needs to change their description for all Ameraucana varieties to match that of the APA.

I was a bit surprised by the divergence from the other varieties, but I'm just getting back into the swing of things.
