CRPC Alliance Meet Report
« on: June 03, 2018, 11:55:49 AM »
Well, we had beautiful, typical cool Wisconsin spring weather for our show.  The thunderstorms predicted did not develop, just had a  light sprinkle during cleanup after the show.   The Thompson family of Wisconsin had best Ameraucana on a beautiful LF White hen or pullet.  Kristin promised to send me a photo, so I'll put that up when I receive it.   This bird should have easily been on champion row in my opinion.  Reserve LF Ameraucana was a nice black cock by Jim Fegan.   John and Kathy left our place this morning about 10 a.m. for their ten hour drive home, and John has the complete judging results.   John did take some photos of the winners I believe, so hopefully he will post some here.   In the bantams, it was a White cock taking BB and a White pullet RB.  They both are the result of crossing Walchak with Buske line birds.  Here is the only photo I managed to take, and even that one was back home this morning, the winning bantam.   Can anyone spot the reason he had no chance of advancing farther?   Click on it to enlarge the photo.

Glad to hear the weather cooperated for you all. Looks like that Cockerel one sickle is not all the way in? Still a very nice looking Ameraucana, congratulations to all the big winners

Russ wins the $100 prize I was giving away for the correct answer.  The white cock had lost one sickle feather so only had one.  Good eye Russ!

Thanks to Bob Rennolet for donating $20 to the Alliance!  ;D  He continued his tradition of bringing chicks to the show and donating the proceeds from them.  The local Coulee show club and Chantecler Fanciers International also received $20 donations each from Bob.

The "muffs and beards" are a little sparse on those three.   I don't think any of them would win a prize. :o   Well, maybe the one in the middle.
