APA scoring

For those who are interested in knowing why certain birds are judged to be closer to the standard than others (and placed more highly in rank), I copied the scoring from the American Poultry Association (APA) standard of perfection. Sorry the columns didn't come out more evenly! It was pretty clear to me that the big points are to be found in the back, tail, wings, breast, body, legs and condition. Comb/schmomb - as long as it doesn't DQ, it's not a very big deal.

Non-White Chickens    Shape    Color
(4) Symmetry    4   
(4)Weight or Size    4   
(10) Condition and Vigor    10   
(5) Comb    5   
(3) Beak    2    1
(4) Skull and Face    3    1
(4) Eyes    2    2
(2) Wattles    2   
(4) Earlobes    2    2
(6) Neck     1    5
(12) Back    6    6
(8) Tail    4    4
(8) Wings    3    5
(10) Breast    5    5
(8) Body and Fluff    5    3
(8) Legs and Toes    5    3
Total    63    37

When all else fails, go spend time with your chickens. :)

Pens are currently filled with Red Cuckoo (Marraduna) and Red Basque (Gorria) breeders, Spitz, and Seramas.

Re: APA scoring

I really wish the APA put point in the cards like they do over in Europe. It would be really great to know that extra detail of how they scored out of 100.

Raising red cuckoo (marraduna) Euskal Oiloak and self blue (lavender) & black Belgian Bearded d'Uccles.
