Shawnee Oklahoma National Meet and Qualifying Meet for the
White Variety

There were 76 White Marans shown for the Qualifying Meet , with a total of
179 Marans.....our Judge Steve Jones from Poetry, Texas, informed us that
he would be recommending the White Variety for acceptance into the
American Poultry Association, in January 2014, during the Northeastern
Poultry Congress in Massachusetts.

The MCCUSA provided beautiful trophies, ribbons, and prizes for the
National Meet.

We also held a Marans Egg Show which had 30 entries.....
