100 years for the American Bantam Association!

The American Bantam Association celebrates 100 years in 2014! I've already got my commemorative blanket and the Yearbook arrived last week. What a terrific volume!
If you are getting started or have been involved with Bantams forever, this is the book to have. It's a handbook of tips on husbandry and breeding, along with complete lists of everyone who is anyone in bantams. If you need some birds, you will find a breeder who can provide them in here. Along with testaments to their excellence, as demonstrated by the many awards they have won over the years.

I especially enjoyed the Time Capsules, letters and articles from the past hundred years. An article from Backyard Poultry magazine back in 1981, before it was resurrected in 2006. What a great heritage to reflect on!

Seeing so many active chicken lovers gives me hope for the future. Take advantage of the special offer of membership plus the Yearbook and the blanket if you are not already a member.
