    Hi everyone, I am hoping someone out there would be able to help me out with a project I am working on.

    I need to know what breeds are listed in the current American Poultry Standards as well as their classification.

    I live in Australia and we have Softfeather Light Breeds and Softfeather Heavy Breeds and Hardfeather Light Breeds and Hardfeather Heavy Breeds and True Bantams. The same for Ducks but are either Heavy Breeds, Light Breeds or Bantams.

    I know Americans use different classifications such as SCCL - Single Comb Clean Legged ( I think that is right ).

    If someone could please help me out that would be greatly appreciated.
