I keep seeing posts saying "standard chicken", "standard rooster", "standard hen". It's confusing the heck out of me, because when I first arrived here and called them that, I was immediately told (mostly by people who were very nice about it) that a "standard" chicken does not exist in regard to size; they are either large fowl or they are bantam, nothing else. I was then told that the only time a chicken (be it hen or rooster) should be referred to with the word "standard" is when you're discussing the Standard of Perfection (SOP) in regard to that chicken...OR when you're referring to the "standard varieties" within that breed. Example: "Buff is a standard variety of Brahma." However, I keep seeing "standard" here more and more when referring to size...so which is it please? Is "standard" correct or is "large fowl" correct and if "large fowl" is correct why not type LF instead of "standard" I know...pretty petty thing to be concerned with, but if I'm going to raise chickens I want to refer to them correctly. Thanks in advance!
