    Do either one especially the APA make a breed specific standard publication for the wyandotte in both large and bantam fowl that would include all the most recent colors recognized by each association? I'm mainly interested in the bantams but work with the LF also and would like to have copies of them to judge by according to the most recent standards .

    You're asking if you can purchase a copy of the standard for a single breed? I sincerely doubt it. If there is a wyandotte club website, they may have extracted portions of the standard with permission from one or both organizations. The standards are not that expensive unless you want the full colour APA version.

    Yes I was wondering about specific breed standard book. I've looked on the net and found the APA standard but doesn't include the color blue for wyandottes and I can't find anything in it about the bantam standards. I don't mind buying the book at all but would just want to be sure it had all the latest additions as far as colors go.

    That's right & actually Blues were added to the APA Standard in 1977.

    Great so the one for sale on the APA website would be the most recent and have all the accepted colors then?

    Quote:I would wait on buying an APA standard. The newest edition is due out at any moment. Actually it should have been out already, but it's been held up.

    Also, the ABA recognizes several more colors in the wyandotte bantams. 8 more colors I think.

    I thought the 2011 Standard was already out; at least that was my understanding. I'm sure I also read that the APA will have them for sale at the Crossroads Show.​
