Dewayne,

I'm sad to hear that you are getting out of Ameraucanas. I have enjoyed seeing your posts and pictures of your birds. Best wishes!

Dewayne, I don't know you but through your posts. I will miss them, you have taught me a lot! I thank you for that. Hopefully, in the future, you can come back. (Fingers crossed) I wish you well.

Kelly

Dewayne,

  Sorry to hear that you are quitting Ameraucanas.  I was hoping to be able to meet you at a show someday.  Feel we have a lot in common other than Ameraucana chickens.  Hopefully, you will be able to return to them in the near future.

  Special thanks for allowing us to purchase some buff chicks earlier this season.  Hopefully you managed to get the rare ones-buffs, silvers, brown reds into good hands so they can continue production.

  Best Wishes,

  Paul & Angela

DeWayne, I quit using my styrofoam incubators years ago after switching to GQF Sportsman incubators and hatchers. My hatches with the foam incubators went from dismal to great without any regularity. I did notice that every time the lid was removed to turn eggs most of the hot air escaped and most of the humidity also. I bought egg turners for them and even rigged up clear plastic tubing with a funnel to refill the water channels. That let me keep the lids on during incubation. This helped but still doesn't come close to the hatches that I get with the GQF'S.

DeWayne, if you do ever get back into it and are looking for some blacks, blues, or splashes...give me a holler.  I would be happy to send you some. :)

This is my last year for wheaten/blue wheatens, though - so I can't help you there.

Yes I did Gordan. The teacher said that not many hatched. They were hatching great here but she also told me it was her first time ever trying to hatch eggs. I walked her through the process but I'm not sure what she did wrong. It was a styrofoam incubator so maybe the temperature fluctuated. I use a cool place like my basement and I wouldn't think a classroom would be a good place to incubate but that time of year it was still cool here so I thought it would be ok. It's hard to tell what all toke place there in 21 days though.
I did enjoy everyone talking chicken and just being friends. Who knows, I may get back into Breeding some day.

DeWayne, not only a sad day for you, but for the rest of us in the ABC! I have enjoyed your input and responses on the ABC Forum over the years. Though I have never met you personally because of the numerous miles between you and myself, I can feel how close you became to your Ameraucana Flock. Keep us posted on how you are doing. At least you have half a year access on the ABC Forum and I'll anxiously await any posts from you. Did you ever hear any response on how the egg hatching donation went?

  The South-Central district meet was set for the HOTO poultry show in Fayetteville, ARK. at our South-Central District meeting in Shawnee, OK. last Dec.  We can and will have a good Ameraucana meet if Ameraucana breeders will support the show, which is November 4th & 5th, 2017.  The district meets should be the prominent show for each district, with the exception of the districts hosting our national meet, which should be the top Ameraucana event in the U.S.

  There has been some incorrect info spread about hotel availability.  I asked Jacob for hotels available and prices.  He sent me to Bentonville, ARK.-google hotels.  I was surprised to see that according to the internet, Bentonville, has 92 hotels!  Presently the cheapest I found was Home Towne Suites.  Friday and Saturday night for 2 nights for 2 adults is only $89 for both nights-$45/night.  Days Inn has two nights for $102-$51/night.  Some go into the $300's for 2 nights $150/night.  If you are planning on showing at the ABC South-Central District meet you need to book a room ASAP to get a reduced rate as they are in high demand.

While we're waiting for the Judges to evaluate the entries for the Gallery competition for Brown Red Ameraucanas, start getting your pictures of your Silver Ameraucanas, both large fowl and bantam, ready to go!

A new competition for photos for the ABC Gallery will begin on July 1st. Every month, a new variety will be selected for folks to send their images in of adults, chicks, young started birds. The best photos will then be selected by a panel of judges: Walt Leonard, Rip Stalvey, and Tom Roebuck.

The winning photos will be announced and used in our ABC Gallery.

The next competition begins July 1st and entries will close on July 15th, so dust off those photos and get them sent in! The variety for the July competition is Silver Ameraucanas, bantam and large fowl.. You can send pics of adult male and female (profile shots preferred), chicks (group images ok), and young started birds.

The goal is to have the best representation of each variety, at the various stages of development, in our gallery.

Pictures must be a minimum of 600px wide x 400 px high to be included. Send your photos to info@ameraucanabreedersclub.org and put "Gallery Competition" in the subject line.

Oh DeWayne...I sure wish you could have kept your chickens, but I understand the demands of family, job, and life.  I'm sure going to miss seeing your posts here and in the FB groups.  Take care and let us know how you're doing.
