    I posted this on the online poultry show and did not get a response. I think it was on the wrong topic.

    I get very confused when trying to read the results of a show. Everything is abbreviated and dont know what half of it means. I am also confused about what category they are in. There are clean legged birds that are in some category that is other than that. Can someone point me to a source that will explain all of that to me. I think I have heard that there is an APA manual but that we should wait until the new one comes out.. Is there a great on line source or even a thread on here that I could reference??

    Thanks for the help.

    Basically, this is a place were people make Contests about a certain breed or type of poultry and people enter thier pictures of that bird.

    If you are looking for a place to talk about showing chickens and the standard breeds, The "Breeds, Genetics, and showing" Section is were you want to be.
