    Hi,

    What would define a "show quality" Buff Orpington? Hen or Rooster.
    I'm asking this question for a friend.

    Now, I'm going to ask a question for myself:
    What would make a "show quality" Black Langshan?

    Thank you for any help!

    You asked... What would define a "show quality" ?

    Show quality is defined as being bred in accordance with the American Standard of Perfection (SOP), published by the American Poultry Association (APA). If the bird is shown at a sanctioned APA poultry show and is not disqualified, I would consider it a "show quality" bird. It may not win the class, but it would still be better than a DQ.
