I started showing poultry with my dad over 40 years ago
    when I was about 10 years old. In my 20's I started my own
    cabinet shop and stopped showing for a number of years as
    my dad continued in the hobby on his own.

    One day when my son was about 8 years old, we were up in
    the attic and he saw a box of trophies. Next thing I knew I
    was back in an old familiar hobby, looking at it from the
    other side. My son is now in his 20’s and as things have
    come full circle, I am showing on my own. I hope one day
    when his life settles down he will pick it up again with his

    I got started with bantam Buckeyes about 3 years ago when
    I was looking for a breed that wasn't in the same class as the
    Belgian d'Anvers I was showing.  Annette de Bruycker, Bob
    Rhodes, Chris McCary, and Sharon Fildes, all ABPC
    members helped me get my first birds. I quickly fell in love
    with the breed. They are productive and gentle birds.

    Buckeyes are a triple purpose breed for me because I enjoy
    showing them as well.
