I've always been curious about how people become poultry judges. What process do you have to go through? What training is involved? Are there any qualifying requirements such as "must have achieved the rank of Master Breeder of XXX..." "must have shown at least 3 breeds in at least 2 APA sanctioned shows per year for the last 7 years..." et cetera? "Must have been a paid member of APA for at least a decade"? Or is it a little more open ended? If you've become (or failed to become) an APA accredited poultry judge, I would love to hear about it.
