    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.
