If you go to a very reputable show breeder you could ask them to evaluate their offerings to you. In doing that they would stress what points are important in the standard. If you only plan to breed/show one breed of chicken it would be best to have the SOP and learn it backward and forward.

Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :) The Standard of Perfection is so packed full of information, that there really isn't an alternative to it. If you want to be successful at showing chickens, I would recommend just buying the Standard of Perfection.
