    Mottled Houdans and Orpingtons? I am lookingat my current flock for something else to show next month at a county fair show. I plan on taking my Bantam Cochin Rooster, but would like to have a couple.
    I have 3 Mottled Houdan Roosters and a Buff Orpington Rooster, so without spending the crazy amount to buy a standards book now, I was wondering if someone here can tell me.

    If you get the non-color version of the standard it is way cheaper than the other one but if you plan on showing it is a must have item. A very handy reference.

    I agree with nnbreeder, you can get the 1998 b&w for $15 or so.

    THanks for the links. I will check them out and see if Larry, Moe or Curly will work for showing.

    I went to the library a year ago and checked the standard book out. If they dont have one you can do an internet library loan which includes university systems, You are sure to hit pay dirt with that! [​IMG]
