I just returned from a show in Hamilton, MT. It was smaller this year than last, but there is always lots of nice people there. There were two shows and I did very well. There were no other large fowl ameraucanas, but I placed well above the breed classifications. A black cock that was given to me by a breeder that I cannot mention on BYC won Reserve Champion of show #1. My buff cock got Reserve Large Fowl for Show #2 and a blue hen won Reserve Champion AOSB for Show #2. I made enough money on prizes, hatching eggs and selling chicks that it paid for the whole trip, even the hotel!
