Dear ABA members,
It is with much joy that I announce the ABA has secured the rights to republish Ralph Sturgeon’s book, Start Where You Are With What You Have. Mr. Walt Leonard was the original publisher and he has graciously allowed us to reprint this historic book and make it available to the current generation of poultry fanciers!
In my opinion, this is the book every new and old poultry breeder needs in their library! Ralph’s simplistic writing style makes it easy for all to understand the different methods of breeding and improving a line of birds and details a very easy plan to make your birds better than what they currently are. This book had a great influence on me as a young poultry breeder and his principles are still used by many poultry breeders today! Order your copy today from Karen or in the ABA Online store at bantamclub.com, today.

These bands are not “required” – however many of our ABA members feel these are a MUST for their breeding programs. They are made of plastic and numbered clearly with ABA, the year (16) and an identifying number. They are “seamless”. They are intended to be placed on “Young – growing” birds. Many ABA members try to put them on the birds when they are around 8-12 weeks old. You try to place them on a growing bird, if they slip off – you try again in a week or so – repeating the process until they stay on. Once on – they are permanent. This tool is “Priceless” in the breeding pen!
