- The new color/mark must successfully, repeatedly
reproduce itself. The resulting quality of the new Indian
Fantail must be sufficient as to be showable (this does not
mean capable of winning the show, but is far enough along to
proudly be showable…representative of the breed).
color/mark must be popular enough to gain the interest of at
least two other breeders not of the same household. The
interested breeders must breed out of the same stock
developed and provided by the originating breeder(s).
- The originating breeder(s) plus the two additional new
breeders (or more) will breed enough birds of this
color/mark to create a new class (8 or more birds) and will
exhibit in at least two or more IFCA shows. (Note: this new
color class is not to be confused with an experimental
“genetics” class; this Breeder Recognition Points Project
will have progressed beyond that point.)
- The originating breeder may now notify that the IFCA
Awards Committee of its probable completion in adherence to
the above procedures and rules. The Awards Committee
Chairperson will notify the Genetics Committee and IFCA

Fantail Hall Of Fame
It is the skill of the breeder to
create an Indian Fantail that meets the IFCA Standard; but it
is the disposition and “showmanship” of the bird that also
contributes to the win. If a bird does not station or show
well, it will not win a Championship. To recognize and
immortalize such true Champions, the INDIAN FANTAIL HALL OF
FAME award has been developed to recognize these outstanding
Any Indian Fantail bred and owned by
the exhibitor/breeder and meeting the following requirements:
- To be awarded annually based upon
the show records of the previous two years.
- Within a 2 year period (from Grand
National to Grand National), the bird that has the most
Master Breeder points is automatically elected to the Hall
of Fame. In case of a tie, both birds will be recognized. If
more than two birds end the 2 year period within the same
points, no award will be given, as no bird, at this point
has clearly distinguished itself.
- A certificate will be awarded,
stating the bird, band number, total points won, the years
and breeder’s name.
