I have had Self-Blue Bantams since 2011 and meet the APA membership requirement. I'll gladly help.

I'm looking for a pair or trio of Self Blue Bantams. Can pick up at Ohio National.

The TVMDL has all the information you need for NPIP certification in Texas. J.C. Essler is the program coordinator there.

Jr show/showmanship is for exhibitors under 18. You check the APA/ABA box. You don't need a double coop for Ameraucanas. If the form asks for band numbers then enter them. If not, don't worry about it.

If you live in Texas here is the link to find your local P/T tester.

This showed up in one of my Lavender bantam hens immediately before her first moult. I had several young birds exhibit this trait at about 12 weeks of age this year. All have been culled.

If I recall correctly, Paul Smith told me that the darker chicks generally end up with better lacing.

I'm looking for a Lavender bantam cockerel or pair. Will anyone have any at Shawnee next month?

I entered Lavender Bantams last year and this past winter as "Lavender" and didn't hear anything negative or experience a problem.

To my novice eye it looks like you've got a pretty good pullet there, Sharon.

You'll see the same type of sores on the pea comb and facial area. Just a little harder to detect on birds who don't have large combs and wattles. I had a couple of cockerels come up with it back in January. They both had the dry pox version and recovered fairly quickly. Vaccinated my two flocks (they're located about 8 miles apart) and haven't had any issues since.

This website may help you with some of your questions. We're planning on being at the Arkansas show and hope to see you there.

I use a digital postal scale with a piece of carpet on top (to keep the bird from slipping on the slick surface) to weigh my birds. You could also use it to weigh your eggs. Stromberg's is one source for egg scales.
