Uniontown Poultry Association's Spring Show has Java Meet

Black Java Roo owned by Liesa Stiller
The Uniontown Poultry and Farm Products Association had their spring show April 17th at the Fayette County Fairgrounds in Dunbar, PA. which included some very special chickens, Black and Mottled Javas. Our very own district #2 director Liesa Stiller was on the show committee and saw to it to have a Java Meet. A meet is when 3 or more people show 10 or more birds of the same breed. The show consisted of pigeons, rabbits, livestock and poultry. Also note they are an APA/ABA sanctioned show  The Uniontown website states that they are a diverse group including people from all ages and backgrounds and that their fundamental objectives are to encourage the breeding and exhibiting of all varieties of poultry, to foster friendliness and good fellowship among its members,and to supply helpful and authentic information to all seeking advice. Attached is a photo of Liesa's rooster that won best of breed and best variety for both of the shows. He went up against one other rooster (same variety) - Liesa hopes to make that a larger number for the fall show. Also pictured is Krista Martin's Mottled Java pullet - best variety, unfortunately for Krista her Mottled Java was the only Mottled shown, for both shows. Also pictured is Angela Hamman's Black Java pullet  that was reserve breed and reserve variety in the first show and Lisa's pullet won reserve breed and reserve variety for the second show. Liesa also had a booth and signed up two new members Krista Martin and Angela Hammon. There will be another in the fall. The show information and catalog will be posted when it becomes available.
