Paul has offered to cover priority shipping on his chick donation. I adjusted the donation list to reflect it above. I’ll join Paul and cover all shipping costs on my items as well.

Thank you to everyone that has placed bids on the auction items. I am really pleased with the funds raised thus far and I know the amount raised will only continue to rise as we enter the weekend. It is great to be a part of the ABC!

Thanks for the info, I found a used copy on ebay, Im going to message the seller and try to get the price down a bit. I'll add it to my saved searches incase someone else lists one for cheaper. The current one is $60.

See ya at the show, no worries if you dont bring your copy. I know there will be a lot going on during the show.

You're welcome Spencer. It sounds like an interesting project.  Please do keep the forum posted.

If you plan to dabble with creating and crossing colors I would encourage you to acquire some good references on the subject. One of the old mainstays is Fred Jeffery's "Bantam Chickens" @1970.  It covers all of the major colors, how they are related, examples to breed them and often advice from well known breeders in the past for that variety.  I will try to bring a copy this weekend if you want to give it a look.  The ABA had them in print until just recently (@$30 in hardback) and I hope they are still planning to reprint for the hobby.  But there are still some used copies floating around too.

Hey Spencer. That is quite the old project and I would be surprised if it was still viable. But Michael might give you some tips on his experiences vs expectations.  Sending you an email.  Drc

Breeding / Crele Ameraucana Project Color
« Last post by Tennessee Farms on December 04, 2019, 05:39:26 PM »
I saw back in the mid 2000s that Michael Meunks was selling some of his project crele birds. Does anyone have Mr Meunks email to contact him? I tried an old email I found with hopes of hearing from him.

Does anyone here know what came of the project or how far along he developed them?

I have 5 crele oegb hens and 1 male. I have some bantam white and black ameraucanas also that I have raised with the crele, hoping they mate well in the spring. Wish I had a silver bantam male to work with but I'll be focusing on the black X crele mating this first year. And test mating the whites to determine their underlying color.

If anyone else has worked on this project please feel free to chime in. I'm not concerned with the absence of slate in the legs since this is a project and not concerned with their ameraucana status.

News and Information / ABC National - New Member drawing
« Last post by Don on December 03, 2019, 08:06:38 AM »
We have a few days before the show date where the "new member drawing" will be held. So join now to be included in that drawing for the $100 gift card.

We will have a few club items for sale at the show as well as materials/information for your review.  So even if you aren't showing, please stop by the club table and introduce yourself.  We will be happy to answer questions or talk with you about the club and breed.  And feel free to bid on the auction items and have a chance for the raffle items. 

Come on out and enjoy the show.  Look forward to meeting you there......

Thank you on behalf of the ABC for all those who donated items for the club auction. The proceeds from these will be used for the 2020 ABC National in the SC district. Paul has designated this to be at Norman OK next winter.

           ! The online bidding will close here in a few days so get your best on line offers posted soon. !

For those attending, there will be additional items for bidding and the raffle for the gift card and poultry standards.  I have a few folks on my Christmas list that I will be bidding for.  I may not be the only one.  I know Billy Helton loves chicken related items too.

Also feel free to bring any items you would like to donate for auction at the show.

Same here, Cant wait to meet you and everyone else!

The Dixie Classic is our favorite show to attend since it's in Tennessee. It always seems well organized. A few years back when we were there, they were filming the documentary, "Chicken People." If you haven't seen it, it's a fun watch :)

I know in past years members have gone out to eat at a buffet or something of the sort at nationals as a group.

Does anyone have plans of doing so this year?

If so my family and I would enjoy going out with everyone Saturday evening. We lived in Knoxville for for a while and know the area pretty well if we decide to go out and need any recommendations.

Spencer and Lisa,

I am glad that you will be able to make it to the show! I look forward to meeting you there.
