Proposed Standard for the Self Blue Large Fowl Ameraucana
Presented to the APA Jan/2016

The Ameraucana Breeders Club moved forward with its petition to the APA for acceptance of the Large Fowl Ameraucana, in the color variety, self-blue (aka lavender), in January of 2016, in response to our members vote of approval at our annual meeting in November 2015. The proposal was unanimously accepted by the APA Board at it's 2016 Board Meeting at the show in Modesto, CA. A copy of the cover letter to the APA can be read here, APA Cover Letter.

SELF BLUE AMERAUCANAS
COLOR – MALE AND FEMALE

COMB, FACE, WATTLES, AND EARLOBES: Red, except female earlobes to be very pale, matching color of skin.
BEAK: Horn to black.
EYES: Reddish bay.
SHANKS AND TOES: Slate, bottoms of feet and toes white.
PLUMAGE: In all sections preference to be given to a medium shade of clear blue, free from lacing, shaftiness, mealiness and messiness, with no contrast in color between any of the sections, a harmonious blending of all sections being desired, the male sex feathers of hackles, back, saddle and wing-bows carrying a metallic gloss of the same basic hue as the general plumage and free from green, purple or bronze sheen. Indistinct barring is a defect.
BEARD AND MUFFS: Medium shade of clear blue, matching body color.
