About the APA
To promote and protect standard-bred poultry in all its phases.
To accomplish our mission, the American Poultry Association will use these steps/values to govern the manner in which we achieve our goals:
Continue the publication of the American Standard of Perfection with breed and variety descriptions for all recognized standard bred fowl.
Encourage and protect poultry shows as being the show window of our industry, an education for both breeders and public, and a means of interesting young future poultry keepers in taking up poultry.
To continue the practice of granting Judging Licenses to qualified members who have met the requirements of the licensing program.
Assist, encourage and help educate the junior poultry keeper to the sound and practical value of standard-bred poultry and pure breeding.
Towards these goals the APA supports sanctioned meets at poultry shows all over the US and Canada, including an Annual, a Semi-Annual and a Canadian National meet.
