To say the least, their stock is robust.

There are not many people with the passion and dedication to preserve heritage breeds that the Drowns display. I applaud them.

From there site:

 

1. All breeds within the APA Standard are selected to those standards. We do, however, not discard a bird from our breeding program for minor flaws, such as an extra point on a comb or a slightly off color eye, if the bird has other desirable traits. Our goal is to maintain genetic diversity and all defining characteristics.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To me that is not breeding to SOP.  If you do not discard those minor flaws, you pass them on. That said I admire what they are doing to preserve rare breeds.
