Specks Standard Of Perfection (Tongue-in-Cheek)

Okay, I'm so tired of SOP, SOP, I wrote my own SOP.

Speckledhen's Poultry Standard of Perfection

Comb:
Single, pea or rose, or combination thereof. No others permitted.

Head:
Firmly attached to neck, in proportion to the body.

Neck:
Must be completely feathered. No naked necks.

Shanks and toes:
Must be in proportion to the body. No extra long ostrich legs or extra short dumpy legs allowed.
Any color acceptable.

Fluff:
Must have lots of it, especially butt-fluff, however, must not look like they're wearing clothing two sizes too large!
Any color except white.

Plumage/Color:

Any pattern and any color except white are acceptable.
Must have real feathers. No silkie feathers, no frizzles, sizzles, or other "izzles" allowed.

Miscellaneous:

Hens must lay eggs occasionally. Any color is acceptable.
Hens must have tendency to brood once a year, but no more than once. No "serial broodies" permitted.

Friendly and curious personalities necessary in both sexes.


The only judge as to whether a bird meets this Standard is ME.
