From the A.P.A. Committee on the Cream Light Brown Dutch Bantam

In an effort to be "all-inclusive" for the description of the female coloring, after discussions with several members, the qualifying judge and the Board, the description was modified to read "creamy brown (sometimes with a grayish cast)" and this was forwarded to the A.P.A. Standard Committe for their review. The Committee is presently reviewing and taking into considerations the requested changes in the descriptions. In an effort to properly review the Cream description of the females, the A.P.A. Std. Comm. has requested female back feathers so that they can review the colors in making their decisions. Any members who are presently working with Creams are asked to participate in this feather sampling as outlined below. Any additional or future information that we have on this subject will be noted on this website so that all have access to the most current progress in the discussions with A.P.A. officials.

To send feather samples of female creams....please send ASAP

1. Pluck several feathers from the back region of each female and place inside a small zip-lock bag. Use separate bag for each female sampled.

2. Write your name, address, etc., on each bag.

3. Write the leg band number of the female used for the sampling on the bag.

4. If this was a female displayed at the recent Muscle Shoals qualifier, please indicate.

5. Each person may enclose a short note of your breeding experience with Creams

a. How long have you been breeding and working with creams?

b. What consistency have you observed in the color of your males?

c. What consistency have you observed in the color of your females
