Large Fowl are recognized, but under the name "self blue"...the APA is living in the past and refuse to step into the 21st century.

I understand, APA doesn't follow breeders very much.
John, do you have records of who created each of the colors? as far as i know you are the one who knows the correct yellow?

Thanks !!
