In a showmanship class last year, I was asked what the difference between a disqualification and a defect was. I said that a disqualification was something that was completely wrong for the breed, like a Buff orpington having a rosecomb, and that a defect was something that was just not preferable, like a Buff Orpington having its comb slanted to the side. Was this a correct answer? Couldn't have been too bad, 'cause I got Reserve Champion. However, that could of just been because there was no one else that new it either!!
