Colorado Poultry Association Spring Show
« on: June 14, 2015, 10:18:45 AM »
Hello all. 

The Malcolm Boys attended the CPA summer show yesterday and the Ameraucanas were a hit!  Steve Jones (TX) judged the poultry.  Walter and Gus both placed 1st in showmanship with their Ameraucana bantam partners.  Best AOCCL in the Junior Show and Reserve AOCCL in the Open Show with a white cockerel they hatched last year.  Their LF black cock (now 2 1/2 years old and received as a day old chick from John Blehm) continued his awesome streak with Best AOSB in both shows and Best Large Fowl in both shows.
The show was noticeably smaller but very competitive.  The AI scare has many folks staying home.  Because the show was small the Junior birds competed against each other and the Open birds.

The Ameraucanas generated much interest and people were excited to see the bantams.

PS Gus won the Junior show and Best Modern in a very competitive Open Class with a birchen MGB hen we picked up last year to keep our MGB cockerel company.  She was not intended to be a show bird!  Go figure...
