    Wasn't sure which section to post this topic in, but does anyone know if the American Standard of Perfection book includes Bantam breeds, or do you have to get the Bantam Standard book to get the standards on bantams? They're kinda pricey, so I don't want to get both if bantam breeds are covered in the APA book.

    Yes, but the standards differ slightly between APA and ABA. The standards committees for both ABA and APA to try to work out the diferences and bring the standards into alignment with each other.
  5. Ah! Thats true. Doesn't the ABA recognize 6 varieties of Silkies, and the APA recognizes 7?
