    Q1: What is "table-top" show?

    Serama are judged in a Tabletop-judging scheme. The birds are individually judged and evaluated while standing free on a table in front of one or more judges.

    This sets the Serama apart from what most chicken breeders are used to since all other breeds are simply picked up then placed back into their cages. Therefore, the Serama must not only fit the standard in appearance but it must also have the correct behavior and be easy to handle.


    Below is an excerpt from the serama Standards and Judging article:

    Judging Instructions
    In posing the American Serama one should use either one's hand or judging stick to slowly move the head backwards so the eye lines up with the leg. In doing so the back of the comb will come in contact with the two main sickles on a male or the top two tail feathers on a female.

    Once the eye is in line with the leg one should notice that the large wings are downward sloping or vertical as called for in the American Serama Standard.

    Also the breast is thrust upright and the American Serama is posed in an upright manner.
    When posed thus one can clearly see the breed characteristics that make up the breed; namely the moderately large upright tail, large downward sloping to vertical wings and upright breast.

    One should always keep in mind that this is an upright breed unlike so many breeds developed in America that are horizontal in shape.

    I am not entering a chicken but would like to watch, what time does it start and end? Does anybody sell chickens there or other supplies?

    Thanks,
    John

    The table-top judging will probably start around noon. but demos and presentations about table-top showing will happen every hour starting at maybe around 9am until the actual judging starts. The main show will start at 10am. No specific end time. I think there will be some vendors there at the show selling stuff but I am not sure about chickens for sale. Hope to see you there!
