Curtis.The presentation and adoption of this resolution was the outcome Of a demand, more or less general on the part Of the breeders, for separate Breed Standards, each of which would describe completely one breed only, in addition to the complete work, the American Standard of Perfection, which gives a description of best shape and color type Of all breeds and varie ties recognized by the American Poultry Association, as well as illustrations Of both the ideal male and female of many Of the leading varieties; also, rules by which all breeds and varieties are judged at the poultry exhibitions Of the United States and Canada, and graphic illustrations of the ideal comb, feather markings and the most common defects Of standard fowls in shape, color, and markings.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
