The American Buckeye Club BLASTS into Columbus for the Ohio National

November 2, 2013 Columbus, Ohio - One of the largest poultry shows in the Midwest, the Ohio National, was the site of a recent American Buckeye Club member meet-up!  Several ABC members came out to show their support for various friends exhibiting and to see over 60 Buckeye's entered in both the Open and Junior shows.  Official numbers have not been released but the show promoters claimed over 500 exhibitors entered over 5000 fowl the first weekend in November and possibly set an Ohio National record!  In addition, Pigeons were being shown in large numbers for 2013 and it has been many, many years since they were exhibited at the ON.

A GREAT time was had by ALL and below are a few pictures of those smiling faces!!!
