    I am looking to show bantam mottled cochins and silkies eventually. I don't have the budget to purchase both the APA and ABA standard books since they are quite pricey. If I only buy one, which would you suggest? I don't ever plan on keeping anything but bantams. Are both books in color, and does one seem to have better descriptions/photos than the other? I would really appreciate your input!

    If you are just keeping bantams, than I would purchase the ABA standard. I do like the APA standard though, and it's all I own. Why don't you PM Sonoran and ask her? I bet she knows :)
