    I thought the latest "American Poultry Association (APA) Standard of Perfection" was published in 2001, but I just heard one had been published in 2010 (this year). And yet I cannot find this supposedly most recent edition. Is 2001 (nine years old) as new as it gets?

    I had read somewhere about a 2010 edition coming out, so have held off purchasing, but I've yet to see it offered anywhere. An APA district director told us this spring/early summer, that there was discussion about smaller individual breeds standards being discussed for affordability/to hopefully increase sales, but I haven't seen those offered yet either.

    The 2010 edition will be available in mid to late November. I have it on the best authority- the chair of the APA standards committee.[​IMG]
