New to showing?

A bird in good condition is pretty much in show condition. Exhibition breeds and colours are standardised, with their ‘specifications’ set out in British Waterfowl Standards, or on our website for the recently accepted ones. These explain the basic genotype of the breed and how it should look. Judges look for how well the bird displays all these characteristics, as well as its overall condition. If all the features set out in the standard are good in your bird, you could have a winner!

Features might include:

  • Shape of the head, bill and neck
  • How the bird holds itself (carriage)
  • Body shape
  • Paunch (in geese)
  • Colour and shape of the wings
  • Colour of eyes
  • Shape and colour of the tail
  • Type of plumage
  • Colour and size of legs and feet
  • Colour pattern overall
