It could be different in the US but in England the points are:

Type and Carriage- 55 points
Temperament- 15 points
Legs and feet- 10 points
Head- 10 points
Condition- 10 points

Hope this helps.

I mean what do they look for specifically
post #4 of 4


A bird that exemplifies the standard for the breed.  Next, a bird that is healthy and very well conditioned.

 

Each breed and variety of that breed is only going to be judged if the breed is accepted by the ABA, let's say, the American Bantam Association.  Part of the acceptance process is the careful writing of the standard, the detailed description of the breed/variety.

 

It is that standard which will be used as the measuring stick against which the bird will be judged.  

 

In order to know what to breed toward, the breeder must also possess that standard and carefully breed toward that standard, knowing that the birds will be judged against it.

 

The ABA and the APA both publish a book with all the accepted breeds, wherein is the standard for each of them.  These books can be purchased from their respective websites.  The book is a valued possession and necessary for anyone wishing to be a serious breeder or serious about exhibiting their birds.
