    I see copies of the previous editions of Bantam Standard available for much less. Is there somewhere I can see what changes were made for each edition/revision? I was looking at getting a 2006 edition and wondered if it would be okay for bantam cochins, silkies and seramas. Also the newest 2011 edition says it is in color - what year did that start? I'd much rather have one with colored illustrations than B&W...

    The '06 edition has colour illustrations but it does not include Seramas.

    American serama (white) were added last year; self blue was also recognised for silkies in 2011. I don't think there were any cochin changes.

    I noticed that the 2006 was 298 pages and the 2011 is 390 pages. Did they just use bigger text, or is there that much more new information?
