    Quote:DQ (short for disqualification) are equal, DQ means you bird will not be judged because it fails to meet a minimum requirement. Minor problems are "faults" and usually have a range of points that will be deducted from the perfect score. That being said I am not a Judge nor a Appleyard Expert so I won't comment if the bill is a fault or a DQ because I don't know.
