    Hey there! Somebody asked me what the standard was. I know what it is, and i told them. But they said they wanted the exact definition. Whats the exact definition of the poultry standard of perfection???

    I'm not sure either. I usually refer to it as a book published by the American Poultry Association that contains the correct descriptions for all recognized breeds of poultry. It is an important tool when judging birds; most judges have their own copy that they carry around.
