Another disqualification we need to watch for on our Ameraucanas when breeding them towards the standard is stubs.

Stubs are “a short section of the stem of a feather, sometimes with a few short barbs attached. It is a disqualification when found on shanks, or on or between the toes of clean legged breeds.”

To purchase a copy of the 44th edition of the American Poultry Association Standard of Perfection book, which goes into full detail on the breed standard as well as defects and disqualifications, visit the following link:

You can also find a lot of great information on the Ameraucana breed by browsing through posts on the ABC forum.

Thank you to the APA for giving me permission to use excerpts of the standard when creating these educational posts.
