I have known Bob Jones since the early 70s, and during the early 90s we agreed to form a showing partnership. It has not only been a lot of fun, it has also resulted in an alliance that allows us to field a very competitive array of birds. We typically show 40- 50 birds in both landfowl and waterfowl per show.
Some of our major accomplishments include Best of Show at at least two APA National meets, back to back Super Grand Champions at the Pacific Poultry Breeders Association show in Roseville, CA in 1994 and 1995. The 1994 win was an APA National meet.
We own the top five highest point scores in the California National competition. Two of these high scores may never be equaled.
We are APA Hall of Fame Exhibitors and have each independently achieved many important wins in our careers.
Bob Jones has raised some of the very best Cornish in the United States in both bantam and large fowl.
Most importantly we show to have a good time and I think we have succeeded in accomplishing that.
