 AMA Judging Procedures

1. A committee of three (3) AMA members with good knowledge of genetics will view each bird entered at all AMA meets before judging to insure that each bird is in the proper class.
2. Classes will be provided for Young Cock, Young Hen, Old Cock, and Old Hen in each of the following classes:

3. After each color class is judged in a given group (YC, YH, OC, OH) all 1st place winners will be judged against each other and the best of that age group will be selected by the judge. If the best young hen is a black, the 2nd place black young hen will be brought back and judged against the other 1st place class winners for 2nd Best YH. The reason the 2nd place YH is brought back is that the Best YH in the show is the only bird that has beaten her. By following this process, the best birds in that age group (YH) will be selected regardless of color. It is possible that the best two or three young hens could all be the same color.
4. The best of each age group selected by the above process (YC, YH, OC, OH) will be judged against each other for Champion Mookee. If the YC is selected as champion, the 2nd Best YC would be brought up against the 3 remaining birds for 1st Reserve Champion. The same process is continued until all reserves are selected. By following this process the very best birds in the show will win the top awards regardless of color.
5. After the Champion and Reserve Champions have been selected, the color class winners will be chosen, using the same process described. If the champion was a black, then it would also be the best black. All reserve winners would also win the respective color awards if not already awarded to a higher placing winner.
