Bantam Blue Cock Picture Wanted
« on: April 16, 2021, 01:23:14 PM »
I hate to say it, but we have a lot of good picture on the ABC website. 
But one that comes up fairly quickly is a crazy looking bantam blue cock.
I don't know who's that is, and I'm not looking for a fight.  He just looks kind of crazy.
I'm sure he was/is a fine bird in real life but that picture!
Maybe they are pretty rare and nobody has better, or maybe I'm out of line.
I thought I'd ask, I don't like how he looks at me, lol.

Oh dear. Now he is staring at us from two parts of the website.

He looks like he’s going to peck your eye out. 

If anyone has a photo of a bantam blue cockerel that they would like to submit for potential use on the website, send it to abcsecretaryhelton@gmail.com so Kris no longer feels uncomfortable.

But with seriousness, I would actually like to re-do that slideshow when I am done with the APA and ABA ads.  :)

Haha. I guess while I’m twiddling my thumbs I’ll start a section on the forum for the 2021 national.  :D

Goodness, I had no idea the photo was affecting board members as well as the general membership. I’ll move the slideshow to the top of my priority list.

I think I’m going to ask the Board for a pay increase to complete these tasks Kris. Billy said I should ask for double my current pay.  ;)

P.S. I’m glad others share my dry humor.  :D

You definitely should.  Just think of all the people trying to raise their birds to look like that guy.  He could be setting us back generations of improvement.
And if anyone deserves double pay it's you!
On another note, did you see my post about the emojis?  I put it in the web suggestion forum I think.

I take so many photos of my birds trying to get the “right shot.”

If I had a dollar for every photo of a chicken on my camera roll we could probably put the four kids through college.

Speaking of college, I saw your photos with your daughter at OSU. Congratulations!

Thank you, she's excited, so we're excited.
Yes chickens in general are not photogenic. 
And best taken at their level, makes them hard to photograph, lol.

Everyone needs to contact Paul for pointers, His pictures always turn out great on his show reports and put on the forum!
