This is the official Ameraucana Breeders Club forum. We welcome all visitors, guests, passer-bys, and lingerers here. We'd love to have you stay, sit a spell, and chat with us about your birds, your set-up, or your history in Ameraucanas.

We like to think of this as the local country store. Some of us older folks remember the old country store, where everyone sat around after the farm work was done and talked about the weather, their new Farmall tractor, and how good (or bad, as the case may be) their crops looked that year.

So, come on in and visit with us. Join up and you get to read all the interesting stuff in the "Members Only" area, too.

Posts that are deemed inflammatory, finger-pointing, slamming, or derogatory towards another member will be deleted.

We are new to Ameraucanas, but have really enjoyed meeting all of the people that we have met in this breed. My Mom and Aunt actually got bit by the Ameraucana bug last year. This year, we searched and found the breeders and birds that we wanted to work with.

I joined the association to help me learn more about the breed. I was excited to find the forum and have really enjoyed reading all of the posts in an attempt to learn from breeders who have more experience than we do. I have bred and shown cattle, goats, dogs, and rabbits in the past. It always seemed to be some kind of drama or power struggle in every club or association. When we started breeding and showing poultry, I made myself the promise that I was just going to enjoy breeding and showing and not get involved in the leadership or politics. When I read the first post on this thread, I thought "here we go again".

I appreciate Susan for being understanding and editing her original post. It seems to be more user friendly. I am thankful that I kept reading and did not unsubscribe from the forum.  I also appreciate all of the work that the leadership has done in the past and the people who are now coming into office. I have been there and done that. I know that leadership is a thankless job.

Be Blessed,
Ernie Haire

 Frankly, if I had been a new person looking to join and read the lead "original" post I would have walked away right there. Been there, done that and am not going there again. I joined this club to enjoy the Ameraucanas, visit and learn from other breeders.  I love the breed.

I deeply appreciate Susan editing the lead in post. This edited version is very good.  It is much more welcoming. I have enjoyed the forum greatly and have learned a lot of good things from those that have posted.

I have met some great people in this club and appreciate the hard work that has been done...I've been in those shoes in different situations with other livestock.  I know what kind of commitment and  hard work it takes.  Anyway, I am not going anywhere.....I plan to be in this club a long time.  I'm having too much fun with the Ameraucanas.
