Setting Up The Show Hall
Although the APA & ABA do not dictate all setup procedures there are some generally accepted standards that exhibitors expect and the APA endorses. Page 4 of the 2010 APA Standard advises that "ample ventilation, light and space be provided." The APA recommendeds that each entry should be cooped with it's class breed and variety as listed in the standard.
The APA & ABA also have recommendations listed with the show reports, so take the time to read them before the show has started. The Poultry Show Manager program will help with the order of the coops and place them in the order that they are listed in the standards.
