The purebred poultry breeders, represented by the American Bantam Association, recognize the danger and peril of the present Avian Influenza virus to commercial poultry farms, exhibition flocks and backyard poultry owners.
We stand with our commercial counterparts and state and provincial agencies to do what is necessary to help eradicate this detrimental virus affecting all kinds of poultry and wildlife in the United States and Canada,
The members of the American Bantam Association want to ensure the safety of all poultry and the products produced, as well as the viability of all commercial poultry interests.
Effective bio-security practices must always be employed. However, during this period when Avian Influenza is highly active and destructive, we encourage our members and non-members alike to take extra precautions to help eliminate this virus from our homeland.
We also encourage you to contact your respective State and Provincial Agricultural representatives about the effects any new restrictions will have on the host poultry show venues, the long term viability of rare and heritage poultry breeds, and the impact on 4H and FFHA Poultry projects.

Introducing: YEPABy: Russ Crevoiserat
The New Year has brought a big change for the APA/ABA Youth Poultry Club. In an effort to ensure the future of the youth organization, the club was incorporated with a new name and re-organized to ensure its longevity. With its rebirth, the youth club is now known as the Youth Exhibition Poultry Association, or YEPA. Aside from the name change, a new logo, a new website address and the incorporated form of organizational structure, nothing else has changed. The youth club will be here to educate our children about the values, tradition and importance of exhibition poultry.
The ABA has been receiving requests about sizing the seamless ABA leg band for use on large poultry. While some may ponder how a bantam size leg band would fit a large fowl, the answer lies in the fact that several years ago, the ABA began selling 18 and 20 millimeter bands for well-feathered feather leg bantams. As some breeders have discovered, these leg bands work just as well on some large fowl.
