Fancy Fowl, for years the leading magazine of traditional pure-bred poultry and waterfowl in the United Kingdom, now has an American publicatoin. Fancy Fowl USA published its premiere issue this month, with a Shamo rooster gracing the cover.
This first issue includes articles about Crested Polish and the special problems pertaining to Crest Maintenance; visits to the homes of several poultry breeders, including Gary and Audrey Overton in Ohio, Jim Konecny and Lou and Nickie Horton, in Illinois; a report on a poultry show at the Alabama State Fair Grounds; dealing with roup (coryza); articles on Javas, Marans and Blue Laced Wyandottes; advice on solving poor laying; and a section of Poultry Relics, historical items and information.
There's a delightful British flavor to it, since editors Claire and Terry Beebe are experienced exhibitors and judges from the U.K. They now live in Alabama. We can look forward to more connections with British colleagues through the inauguration of this publication.
