    Can anyone give me information on how Silver Laced Wyandottes and Golden Laced Standard Cochins are judged in show? I plan to enter my chickens into the local fair in the fall, mostly for fun but I would like to know how they will be judged. I also have a Japanese Blacked Tailed Buff Bantam but I'm not quite as curious about him as I am the rest since the rest of them I incubated and hatched.

    Thanks in advance for any help!!

    Depends on what type of show it is. If it's an APA sactioned show they should be judged on the standard for the wyandotte breed. If it's more of a local "for fun" show the standard often times doesn't have much to do with who wins and who doesn't.

    It is an APA sanctioned show, or at least it says they are going by those standards. Do you know where I can find them at? Btw the SLW in your profile photo is gorgeous.
