    Please excuse my city dweller ignorance but what do the judges look for when judging chickens?

    Chicken breeds are judged upon their proper representation of that particular variety in regards to type(shape,stature,characteristics like comb) and their plumage color and quality.
    And yes there are hundreds of different breeds and varieties of chickens with their own breed standard of what they should be bred to look like.
    Hope this helps clear it up for you.
