This is the best title I could come up with. How many people have a copy of the SOP and are not members of the APA? The SOP has quite a few incorrect statements in it, mostly from over 100 years ago, but I am told one has to be a member of the APA to suggest correcting or removing these statements. The APA sells the SOP to nonmembers, so that does not make much sense. It is interesting that an organization knowingly puts out literature that is incorrect, and makes it difficult for anyone to correct it. The SOP isn't all that relevant, since judges and exhibitors ignore the standards anyway. One judge was unaware of a disqualification, and he has had that breed. He had to ask what page it was on. Read the SOP, go to a show, and see how many birds win that should be Dq'ed. Who would be interested in an organization that was interested in poultry, and would educate its members, as well as the public to improve poultry?
