    I am sorry if has been posted by others before with the info I am looking for. I couldn't find it if it has been posted.....
    I am looking for the 'Standard of Perfection' books for both poultry and rabbits.
    The last issue I seen was for the 2001-2005 (can't remember if that was for poultry or rabbits right off hand) printing I would assume there was a new one now.
    I can't seem to find these anywhere. I looked a few times on ebay-all those were [​IMG] old ones. I would really love to have the MOST current issues of each. Our girls are very active in 4-H (2nd year they've been in) and I would like to get these books for them.

    Also is there such a thing as 'Standard of Perfection' for sheep, pigs, goats, cows or other farm animals...

    If I have the name wrong I hope someone knows what I am talking about....
    Thanks for any help and information.

    You can order the rabbit standard book from ARBA. They come out with a new every 3 yrs , I think.

    Thank you. I just purchased the newest rabbit 'standard of perfection' book through the ARBA. I believe it is for 2006-2010 or something like that.
    As for the chicken on....the only thing I can find is from 2001. Does anyone know if there is a more recent one issued. That seems so long ago--that maybe a new one could be out and I don't know where to look.

    How about other animals...sheep, cows, goats, pigs...does anyone know if they have the 'standard of perfection' books for these animals??

    The 2001 Standard (for poultry) is the latest one.

    Ok the poultry book I seen was for 2001 and sells for $59.00. That seems a little high to me, but maybe that's normal...Unless someone knows where I might find one cheaper.....Thanks for the info everyone..Will keep searching.....

    Yes, the $14 is the one I use. It has the same information, but the pictures are not in color like in the hardcover one.
