    The Ameraucana was developed in the 1970's in the United States in order to create a more productive bird without the self-limiting factors of the Araucana. The goal of these breeders was to develop a bird for home food production, pastel colored eggs, small head furnishings, and a plump, well-feathered body. Ameraucanas were admitted to the Standard in 1984.

    Example of Entry:
    ¤¤Age:
    ¤¤Sex:
    ¤¤Variety:
    Weight: (if possible)
    /*Picture of face*\
    /*Picture of front*\¤¤
    /*Picture of whole bird (side)*\¤¤
    /*Picture of behind and back of tail*\¤¤
    /*Picture over back*\
    /*Picture of legs/feet*\¤¤
    /*Picture of Wing spread*\
    ¤¤ = Required (Adding everything would be great , though)

    All birds will be judged by I, LilJoe, according to the American Standard of Perfection: Fourth Fourth Edition. A best variety (BV) will be chosen in every variety entered as well as a Best in Show.

    May the Best Bird Win!!

    Hmm... my Ameraucana is so flighty, those are going to be difficult photos for me to get, but I can't wait to see all the entries!

    If there are no/not very many entries after the designated end date, I may push it back a little.
