Displays can be printed on the coop cards, judging sheets, and other miscellaneous reports. By placing the "Display" on the coop card it allows the judge and others in the show hall an opportunity to recognize a breeder who has the stock to come up with the quantity of quality birds to create a display. The software determines whether a display exists based on the APA & ABA rules.
