    Can you explain what you mean by pose? You want them to be like a circle as far as type goes

    Posing comes into play with birds like modern game, Serama and the breeds that do not really carry themselves in a manner that represents the breed.
    the wyandotte will stand, and look like a wyandotte. So long as it is not laying down you should be fine that is to say so long as it is built like a wyandotte should be. You have several different angles and views of a bird and teh standard describes everything from head, posture, wing carriage, general width description of parts of teh body but a wyandotte while standing looking proud to be the bird it is, will be fine on its own.
    Are they really doing table top judging of Large Fowl wyandottes? I understand youth showmanship which intails mostly questions about the birds like these. But have never seen table top judging of LF wyandottes.
