2018 ABC National Meet
« on: September 14, 2018, 08:42:26 PM »
Good news!
Amanda Heitzman said "The deadline to enter the ABC national at the Dayton Fancy Feather Club Show in Greenville, Ohio has been extended to September 21, and she will take e-mail entries!  Angela and I entered 6 pullets (1 each of black, blue, blue wheaten, wheaten, white and self blue).  They were put into conditioning pens on 9-11.  Its been way too hot to risk any earlier by caging them.  A few weeks ago we saw 114ºF!  The early males are not in any condition to show.  Hopefully we will have some ready for the later shows.  Looking forward to seeing everyone there.

 The 40th anniversary of the ABC was celebrated with the national meet held in Greenville, Ohio by the Dayton Fancy Feathers show on Oct. 6 & 7, 2018.  Eleven ABC members from 7 states showed 61 head of large fowl with some in all 8 recognized varieties, plus self blue and splash wheaten.  Five blue were shown with Susan Mouw winning BV on a pullet and Larry Clionsky winning RV also on a pullet.  Four blue wheaten were shown with Paul & Angela Smith winning BV on a pullet and Patricia Dukes winning RV on a pullet.  Robert Sando showed two brown red with his hen winning BV and cock RV.  Two buff pullets were shown with Larry Clionsky winning BV and Robert Sando RV.  Larry Clionsky showed 3 silver with his hen winning BV and cock RV.  Three wheaten were shown with Patricia Dukes winning BV on a hen and RV on a pullet.  Ten white were shown with Sherry Klaus winning BV on a pullet which also won RB and Res.

 Six self blue were shown with Paul & Angela Smith winning BV on a pullet and Sherry Klaus RV on a hen.  The two self blue also won Best AOV and Res. AOV respectfully.  Speaking of Self Blue, the ABC is going to need all the help that we can get, to be able to complete the self blue recognition process.  We must have a minimum of 5 adult members of the APA show a minimum of 5 cocks, 5 hens, 5 cockerels, 5 pullets and 5 more head of any sex for a total of 25 head of self blue.  Exhibitors do not have to be a member of either Ameraucana breed club but they must be an adult member of the APA to be counted in the required numbers.  Twenty-three blacks were shown with Jerry DeSmidt winning BV, BB, Champion Ameraucana, and Best AOSB on a cockerel.  The RV was a pullet shown by Susan Mouw.  The only large fowl trio was blacks shown by Jeff Vance.

  Eighty bantams were shown by 6 ABC members from 5 states.  Twenty-four blacks were shown with Amber Ringer winning BV and RB on a cockerel.  Jerry DeSmidt won RV on a pullet.  Jerry showed two blue with his cockerel winning BV and hen RV.  Jerry also showed 3 blue wheaten with his 2 cocks winning BV and RV.  Twelve buff were shown with Jerry DeSmidt winning BV on a cock and RV on a cockerel.  Seven silver were shown with Robert Sando winning BV on a cock and RV on a pullet.  Ten wheaten were shown with Jeff Vance winning BV on a cock and Jerry DeSmidt RV on a pullet.  Twenty white were shown with Jerry DeSmidt winning BV, BB, Champion AOCCL and Res. Champion Ameraucana on a pullet.  Jerry also had RV on a hen.  Five bantam trios were shown with one black, one buff, one silver and two white.  Jerry DeSmidt won best trio on a white.  Two non-recognized variety were shown by Jerry DeSmidt with his self blue cock winning best AOV and his splash cock winning Res. AOV.  A total of four bantam display were shown in black, buff, silver and white.  White scored the highest with 96 points shown by Jerry DeSmidt.  Jeff Vance scored 94 points with his blacks.  Tim Bowles judged both bantams and Large Fowl for our national meet.

  The Junior Large Fowl were judged by Ron Patterson.  Seven juniors from 2 states showed 18 head.  Ten blacks were shown with Emily McDonald winning BV, BB, Champion Junior Ameraucana, Champion AOSB, and Res. Champion large fowl of the Junior show.  Katelyn Meeks had the RV on a cockerel.  Four blue were shown with Emily McDonald winning BV and RV on two pullets.  Two whites were shown by Hannah Brush winning BV and RB on her cockerel and RV on her pullet.  Two splash were shown with Hannah Brush winning best AOV on a pullet and Emily McDonald Res. AOV on a pullet.

  Tyler Greer judged the junior bantams.  Twenty-four were shown by three juniors from 2 states.  Nine black were shown with Keirsten Klaus winning BV, BB and Res. AOCCL on her cockerel.  Hannah Brush won RV and RB on her pullet.  Hannah also showed two blue wheaten.  Hannah’s pullet won BV and RV on her hen.  Six wheaten were shown with Keirsten Klaus winning BV on her pullet and RV on her cockerel.  Four white were shown with Hannah Brush winning BV on her pullet and Colton Brush RV on his pullet.  Colton showed 3 self blue with his pullets winning best and reserve AOV.

  Egg show entries were down due to molt in most flocks.  There were not any large fowl eggs entered.  Jerry DeSmidt won both best hen and best pullet bantam eggs.  Susan Mouw made the egg show awards.  Larry Clionsky judged the egg show.

  An ABC business meeting was conducted by honorary Vice President Jerry DeSmidt in the absent of President Clif Redden.  Approximately 30 members and guest were present.  A discussion was held about the next variety to start the lengthy recognition process after the completion of large fowl self blue.  It was decided to go with bantam self blue provided the ABC has 5 bantam self blue breeders who have been breeding self blue for a minimum of 5 years and maintained an APA membership for the entire 5 years.  It will be just over 1 year before the completion of large fowl self blue recognition.  We must have the two qualifying meets which are an APA national meet and an APA district meet.  The national APA meet is set for North American Poultry Breeders at Shawnee, OK. on November 17 & 18, 2018.  We must have a minimum of 5 APA members show in each class C, H, K, P with a minimum of 25 head shown.  The APA district meet is not set at this time for 2019.  Secretary/treasure Susan Mouw is going to check the records for at least five ABC members who can sign the required affidavits to start the bantam self blue recognition project.  A discussion was held to furnish higher awards for juniors who have achieved the master breeder in the ABC points system.  Greenville, Ohio has many small restaurants/eating establishments but only one large enough to accomidate our ABC members at the national meet and it was already booked.  It was decided that pizza would be brought to the fairgrounds for a picnic style get together.  Gordon Gilliam presented the Lifetime Achievement Award to Susan Mouw.  Meeting adjourned.

  The ABC awards were presented Saturday afternoon.  A pizza party with pizza furnished by Jerry DeSmidt and Jake Hendzel of Woodhaven Farm, was held Saturday evening at the fairgrounds.

  It was great to see district directors Larry Clionsky, Gordon Gilliam, Don Cash, Paul Smith and in coming director Robert Sando, Secretary/Treasurer Susan Mouw at the ABC national.

Thanks for drafting up the information and photos from the meet Paul and Angela. I know that it took a lot of time and effort. That’s a really nice black cockerel Jerry, and I really like the type on your white bantams. Pat, your wheaten hen looks really nice! I really like the amount of color in the tail. Congratulations to all of the winners!
