Official BYC 2022 Summer Fair
Standard-Bred Chicken Show
Ends on August 21st, 2022

This division in the 2022 BYC Summer Fair is for chickens bred to the Standard of Perfection. Entries WILL be judged according to the basic principles of the Standard; e.g. quality of feather, clarity of colour, balance of shape, correctness of comb, and how well they represent their breed. Before you enter, please ensure that your bird has been accepted by the APA or ABA and is of a discrete variety—not a mixed colour.

If entries warrant we will have several categories:

  • Bantam Hen
  • BantamRooster
  • Large Fowl Hen
  • Large Fowl Rooster
  • Grand Champion
Enter this show by posting images in this thread. Clear, focused images with the bird in a good pose is best—we recommend at least one clear side profile, along with some closeups, such as the bird held with its wings spread or an image from the front to show leg stance. We ask that you limit the number of pictures per entry to five to make things easier on our judges.

The Standard-Bred Chicken Show is a judged photo contest.
