We entered seven of our Buttercup bantams, as well as three of our turkeys. Our Bronze turkey tom took champion turkey, which is a promising start for our turkey breeding program.
Large Fowl Buttercups:
Bridget Riddle, another member of the American Buttercup Club, brought her large fowl Buttercups.
As we mention in our "About the Breed" section, Buttercups originated as large fowl, or regular sized chickens. They were well known for excellent egg production. It was later that the Bantam version was established.
We have included a few photos of the large fowl Buttercups that Bridget brought to the show.
Her birds sported great combs and coloring, as can be seen in the photos. Note the smooth center of the comb, and uniform points around the perimeter.
At this next show, there will be an official Buttercup Meet, officiated by the American Buttercup club. We will be bringing even more birds to that show, and will post updates with photos.
Stay tuned for blog posts on this upcoming show!
