    I need to know if I can take my splash marans to the Sussex County show on Oct. I know only the BCM is the only recognized color, but I have seen other non-recognized breeds at shows. I also hatched out Thai gamefowl, was told I could show them, what class? Thanks for all your input.

    I'm not even sure that the Black Coppers are a recognized breed/color? Last I heard they were working on it....

    I have taken Coronation Sussex and some others to shows...the most they can win is best of variety (for being the only one there) and the only one there.....I think.....

    What you have is a recognized Breed, the variety is not recognized. Some fairs you would need to contact the fair and make sure. The APA shows you would enter as a Marans and the class would be AOV. In this class you will be able to only win this class and can not move up any higher in awards in an APA approved show.

    The BC Marans were approved at the APA semi-annual in April so the splash is a approved breed.

    You would show the Thai in the All Other Standard Breeds Class and they would be in the Oriental Class.

    Black Cooper Maran are the only approved variety, Splash Maran are a variety of there own and are not approved yet.

    If there is a class at the show that you are going to for Any Other Variety of Maran then you can show a Splash in that class.

    Quote:Here is the All Other Standard Breeds Class,
    All Other Standard Breeds:
    Modern Game, Old English Games, Sumatras, Malays, Cubalayas, Phoenix, Yokohamas, Aseels, Shamos, Sultans, Frizzles, Naked Necks, Araucanas, Ameraucanas

    Thai are not a Standard Breed.
    Note that when it says "Standard Breed" they mean breeds that are in the American Standard of Perfection. (Not All Other Large Fowl)

    Chris, Just did not put everything in there. FYI there is no such thing as a Maran.
