The deadline for the Dixie Classic is quickly approaching. We are wanting to get a final number on what everyone is bringing. If you are able to bring self blues, will you please comment on this post with what you are bringing or email me at 22wareagle22@gmail.com? We are wanting to ensure that we have enough cockerels and cockbirds for the show. Thanks!

Congratulations to all the winners at the Ohio National Show. Thanks to all that exhibited birds but did not win BV or RV . Your efforts helped show the rising numbers and quality of the Ameraucana Breed. The ABC
has some great members, not to mention their birds!

Just noticed this post. Couldn't help but laugh at the thought of weighing birds at shows. I once had a judge tell me that they couldn't carry scales up and down the isle, but it you had to grunt to pick up a "supposed to be cockerel", he was too big.

Just saying.....

Ameraucanas, and the ABC, were well represented at this weekend's Ohio National, in Columbus, OH!  The depth of quality was simply amazing in both LF and bantams, in both Open and JR shows.

I don't have the full reports from Bantams (thank you, Temple Da Silva!) and from Jrs (thank you, Hannah Brush!), but here is a quick summary of what I know:

34 LF Ameraucana in Open, with Black, Blue, Buff, Blue Wheaten, White, and Wheatens all represented.  BB was a black pullet by Susan Mouw, and RB was a blue hen by Karen Sanders Warner.

24 Bantam Ameraucana in Open. I know there were black and white, but I don't have my notes in front of me for the full variety listing.  BB, and CH AOCCL was a white cockerel by Jerry DeSmidt, and RB was a black cockerel by Temple DaSilva!

I believe Hannah Brush got BB in Jrs, but I don't have that full report yet.

Great job, everyone!  Congratulations.

More to come when I have all my notes out of the car (car isn't unloaded yet, except for birds).

Congrats to all of the winners.  I am sure it was a great show even though the weather was a bit sketchy.  Thanks to Gordon for all of the hard work he and his daughter put into the planning and organization for this to happen.   And Thanks also to all those who took pictures to let people who could not travel for the event to be able to see some of the festivities.

Thanks Ernie.   I think it's corrected now.  That's the same date as Knoxville too.  Let Temple know if you have any other info or links for this show.

Congratulations to all of the winners.  Sounds like the quality of entries was apparent to all and the breed was well represented.  I am sorry that I missed it for sure.  I know that the new club put forth a great bit of work to make it happen and go smoothly too.
