    Does the SOP book have pictures to show you what you are looking for when judging chickens? I have a verbal/written SOP for silkies, but I am a visual person and really, really want pictures to compare mine to. What kind of resources are out there? Googling it came up with half a kajillion pictures, most of which were NOT perfection!!

    If there isn't something already out there, do we think the wise people of BYC would be willing to come up with one?

    The SOP has artist's drawings of the "perfect" bird.

    I'm with you~~I need visuals. The ASBC site has alot of pictures of previous show winners; I looked all through them trying to record the "perfect" bird in my mind. You could give that a try.

    Hmmm. We should do one here. Pictures of toes and heads and beards and overall shape. I also want to see pictures of split wings vs not split and what the perfect comb looks like. Perhaps some of our show winners will step up and help us out...
