News and Information / Upcoming APA Elections
« on: December 30, 2023, 12:14:26 PM »
I encourage ABC/APA members in APA districts 7, 9, and 11 to review their candidates for district director and cast their vote for the individual they feel most qualified for the position. If you are not already a member of the APA, please consider doing so. To be eligible to vote in the upcoming election you must join before January 1st.

Housing, Health & Hatching / Cabinet Incubators
« on: June 09, 2022, 06:32:51 PM »
Now that hatching season is over for me, I'm considering modifying my GQF 1502. Cabinet incubators typically do not have a uniform temperature throughout the unit. This causes hot and cold spots in various places inside the incubator.

Those of you who use this type of incubator, I have the following questions:
Have uneven temperatures affected your hatch rates?
What modifications, if any, have you made to your cabinet incubator?
Are there brands of cabinets that provide a more even temperature than GQFs?

Thanks in advance.

I'm looking for some black bantams split to self blue. Sex is not important but type and beard/muffs are critical. Can wait until our national in November if the birds are out of state.

Breeding / LF weight
« on: July 23, 2011, 12:53:33 PM »
I have a group of 19 week old LF blacks and am wondering what they ought to weigh at this age. The SOP calls for LF cockerels to weigh 5 1/2 lbs and pullets 4 1/2. Would this be the weight at around 11 months of age? Has anyone used weight as a culling factor for LF?
