Congratulations Peggy and thanks for promoting the Bantams so well.  I know points aren't what you are after and the presence of the Bantams at the shows has increased the awareness of the breed in your area.  Good Luck and enjoy the journey.

I really never had not thought about the ABA part of things even tho I have been an ABA member for a few years. I was having too much fun with the ABC part !  I was surprised to open their letter and see they had awarded him the starred wins.  After reading that, out of curiosity, I got to looking  back at my shows where I had hens be Best of Breed and realized a couple of them had missed those ABA 100 entry classes by just 3 to 5 birds. Oh well....its nice but we will just keep moving along with ABC , having fun and see what the show season this year provides....

Congratulations, Peggy!  I don't breed bantams, but I hear my "bantam" friends talk about starred wins and what an achievement it is.

I just recently received a pleasant surprise from ABA that my Blue Wheaten Bantam Cockerel that was Best of Breed at Ft Worth in January this year has earned himself two starred wins with ABA which are awarded by winning in classes of 100 or more.  (Just 18 more starred wins to go for Master Breeder :) .. right !)  Those 20 have to be won over a period of NOT LESS than 5 years.....probably not gonna happen with me !  So I am just going to continue to enjoy ABC and anything else that comes along will be a nice surprise......

News and Information / ABC Gallery
« Last post by Susan Mouw on May 18, 2017, 10:43:27 AM »
A new competition for photos for the ABC Gallery will begin on June 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 first month begins June 1st and entries will close on June 15th, so dust off those photos and get them sent in!  The first variety is for Brown Red Ameraucanas.  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.
