I am new to showing. Can you show a color for a breed that is not recognized by the SOP? I have White Javas.

    It depends on the show, the category and the breed.

    Our little local shows do not necessarily look for the usual things, though the judges are very competent. There are also 'fun' categories....ugliest, prettiest etc.

    I have Naked Necks and any colour can be shown (SOP=black), but Brahmas, which I also keep, have to be SOP for colour.

    In big shows then it is likely that the criteria will be much stricter,
