Housing, Health & Hatching / Re: NPIP Certification

I believe most States say NPIP or it's equivalent.  I think TPIP is the equivalent. 

It is best to check with the show or the State to make sure your testing is acceptable.

You are in our thoughts and prayers. Obey your doctors and take advantage of some well deserved rest during your recuperation time.
Exhibiting & Promoting / Re: Splash Ameraucana - acceptance in both LF and Bantam

Great to have you interested in helping Mindy.  We will put your name on the list of LF Splash breedersAPA members starting this year.  We still need a few folks that are longer term APA member/breeders of the color in both LF and bantam to have the process go more quickly from start date.  And after this fall the APA National meet moves to CA which might be difficult to gather enough breeders in one show. We can however start to look for a orchestrated location for some larger entries for a couple shows. These are required for the variety application to be scheduled for the two quailfying meets.  We might try an effort to gather breeders at Columbus this fall.  Maybe folks coming to help with the Self Blue meet will bring some splash entries as well. 
Housing, Health & Hatching / NPIP Certification

We are in Texas.  It is my understanding that in order to show in some states we need the NPIP certification.  We are interested in going to some Oklahoma shows.  Information on the "how-to" of this is sketchy on the internet.  Since it's run by the government it's always difficult right?  But thought I'd ask here for some pro tips.  Best I can tell is I apply through an Oklahoma form, and through that get my cert which is good Nationally?  Thanks for your help.

I wound up getting another styrofoam incubator but with digital readout and controls.  But my last hatch in my old very basic unit was outstanding.  I haven't used the new one yet, but am thinking it's my tactics more than my incubator.  Thanks for your information.

Good luck for a successful surgery and quick recovery.
I joined the APA this year and have been breeding and exhibiting LF splash this year as well. Excited for this!

Ok, folks, we have a scheduled time for surgery of 5/21 at 11:30. The surgery will take about 4 hours and I will be in the hospital at least 5 days.
After home care will be at least 2 weeks on "restricted duty", whatever that means.
Barry said he is going to stay at the hospital until I'm out of surgery on Tuesday, and will be updating my FB page sometime either that evening or the next morning.
My siblings all have his phone number, too, so they may post updates if he can't get to a computer, since he doesn't have a smart phone (his choice).

Aww, thank you, Jean

I hope I can continue to serve this club in the years to come.  Now maybe I can just work on "selected projects" without all the additional responsibility.  I am so thankful to Dana Smith for stepping forward and taking over this role!
