Just curious. I'm going to be picking a few up this weekend. I've kept laying hens for a couple of years now, but I've never been into showing or breeding. Not sure if I will ever be, but it does seem interesting so I'm wondering about the Marans. If they aren't APA recognized, then there wouldn't be a recognized breed standard...so can they be shown? Do some shows have classes for non-recognized breeds? I assume that it would be like a dog show--only recognized breeds?
