    Can anyone point me in the direction of the Standards of Perfection for magpie calls? The only thing I can find is for the UK so I don't know if its the same as the American standards. Im happy to buy a book but I don't want to buy a book that won't help. I can find lots of info about the SOP's for white calls and snowys but nothing on the American SOP's for magpie calls.

    I don't think Magpie is a recognized color for calls yet.

    I know I can show them at the upcoming show because I wrote and asked, they said yes and to enter them as Any Other Variety (AOV). I know the judges go by the SOP but I can't figure out how that would work with an AOV bird. Any thoughts?

    Magpie is not in the SOP ecause the color is not recognized. You have to read the white SOP (you can buy the book from the APA online) and judge head, body, bill, eyes, weight, heigh, length. Ignoring the coloring pattern. You won't ind the SOP online to read as its copy right protected. Good luck in the show.
