News and Information / Re: Story of an unfortunate incident!

Jeff and Sherry,  I am sorry to hear about this happening again. We were lucky to meet them at the National in Ohio this past fall.  I am sure that people will be happy to help get them back started with some stock for this summer or fall.  Can you ask them to put together a preference list of varieties?  I hope they have good luck getting the barn protected again. I've heard that weasels are Very difficult to capture and control.  I wish them the best.     drc

      I want to come to the Ameraucana Breeders Club members and kindly ask on behalf of Hannah and Colton Brush for your kindness and possibly donating any birds, chicks or eggs to these 2 young breeders, or whatever your heart desires!    These two are part of the future of this breed!
     It has come to my attention a few weeks ago, that a weasel killed over 90% of their birds.  This is the second time in less than 2 years this has happened to them! They are struggling, but not ready to give up.
     Their father Eric had reconstructed the barn from the last event and had even put metal al around the sides of the pens approximately 1 foot up on the walls, but yet the weasel chewed through a 2x4 and managed to kill most of their birds in 1 night.   The next plan is in place already! He is going to place 1/2 x 1/2 inch wire on the walls along with placing boards over the wire as well.  In hopes this will stop. 
      They do not want to give up, it has been discussed about quitting, but they don’t want to give up, they love the birds and breeding them. They said NEVER.   And their parents ,Eric and Sarah are supporting them 100 %.
      So if there is anything that you can donate to these two, we know it would be greatly appreciated.
      We will be donating eggs, and possibly chicks, or whatever we can provide them with, we will help them any way that we can.   Their address is   Hannah and Colton Brush. 1471 Riley Rd,   Large, OH 43332
                                                                                                Thank you

And, the saga continues....

As some of you are aware, I had the brain CT scan, with contrast last Tues (3/12/19) at the Augusta University Hospital. This past Tues (3/19/19), I received the results from Dr. Seyyeddi, who is the otoneurologist that ordered the scan.

The CT scan does show another gap in the brain pan, with an active cerebrospinal fluid leak into the middle ear. My appt with Dr Seyyeddi, who ordered the brain scan, is next Wed (3/27/19) to "discuss my options". Of course, Barry and I already know the options - new surgery or no new surgery, and the second one isn't a viable option. With an active leak, there is a risk of infection traveling into the brain and into the spinal column; they have specifically stated meningitis as a risk.

So, now we know and we move forward. Whether this has any impact on my "episodes" or not remains to be seen.

News and Information / ABA Yearbook Ads
« Last post by Susan Mouw on March 20, 2019, 08:27:12 AM »
Well, it's that time again...actually, almost past that time.  Sorry for the delay, but there has been a lot of other stuff going on...

The ABA Yearbook ads are due in 12 days, so we've got a very short time frame to work with. In the past, the ABC has done a full page, b&w ad, with the top of the page dedicated to the ABC header and logo.

That means you, our ABC members, can advertise for less!

Here's the breakdown:
full page (below the header), b&w - 4.375" x 5.7" - $90
half page, b&w - 4.375" x 2.85" - $45
quarter page, b&w - 2.188" x 2.85" - $22.50
eight page, b&w - 2.188" x 1.425" - $11.25

You can see the respective ad sizes below. I'll be happy to help you lay out your ad, but don't wait! This has got to go to the ABA very quickly!

If I have time. I have a lot on my plate to get done before I leave office and the new Secretary/Treasurer takes office.

But, once points are added to the database, they are there until the Secretary/Treasurer removes them, so you don't need me to intervene.

Will you be updating points before you step down? You know the situation regarding the UT jr meets and why they were turned in late while the open show was turned in on time. Will you be updating those points for last yr? I want to make sure they aren't lost in the transition.
