Board of Directors
Paul Smith - President

alternate text

Paul was born in Gainesville, Texas in Sept. 1955 where he grew up on a small family dairy ranch and farm combination. He raised registered Duroc Show Hogs for over twenty years, starting at age 11. There was a 200 head flock of White Leghorn Layers on the family farm, so Paul acquired an early background knowledge of chickens, but no show experience with them until 1999 after acquiring his first Ameraucanas.

He and his wife, Angela bred and raised the mixed Easter Egg Layers for 5 years before purchasing some large fowl Ameraucanas in black, blue, and silver. Later layers were soon phased out after acquiring Ameraucanas.

Paul & Angela hatch many Ameraucana chicks each year. They enjoy showing their poultry and participating in several shows a year, mostly within Texas and Oklahoma. At the 2006 National Meet in Frankenmuth, MI, Paul & Angela were awarded the annual Ameraucana Breeders Club Lifetime Achievement Award for service to the club and the breed. They have shipped thousands of chicks and birds to 49 states of the union, and presently working on paper work to ship chicks into Hawaii, which will make all 50 states before the end of spring 2021 hatching season. We should pass the 40,000 hatched mark in 2021. Paul & Angela have attended most national meets, since they first became involved, only missing 3 since 2000, driving many thousands of miles to attend and participate. They have achieved American Poultry Association Master Exhibitor status solely on their Ameraucana winnings. They have been tremendous ambassadors for the breed.

Paul & Angela have one son, Matthew. Paul also has four other sons, John, David, Josh and Ethan. Paul has worked in an Antique European Automobile Restoration Shop since August 1, 1986, and now retired, works full time on their place with the chickens, sheep, hogs, vegetables and fruit. Both Paul & Angela are involved in the ministry of their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
