Unfortunately Judging is a bit like a trade, sort of learned mostly by experience and handed down information. All the literature available I have seen tends to be very general. For example, something like situations where you should and shouldn't use a judging stick I have never seen written, but I feel is relevant for a learning judge. This is probably due to differing opinions and judging styles, but if you started poking a large class of pekin bantams with a stick for example, there might be a bit of tension in the pavilion. :)

Copy of the latest standard plus they need to know what disqualifications to look for.
So they are initially looking for good type.Need to check for feather quality, looking at wings for size & discoloration's, the width of back, size of the keel, tail feathers, checking for lice or mites, color of legs, counting toes, the width of the head, the color of the undercoat, the
color of the ears, the color of the eyes, checking the beak, checking any foreign colors that do not belong and the general weight of the bird ,split wing etc.
Unfortunately they need to know the standards for all birds eg soft feather or hard feather or waterfowl.
They need to know what say 2 kg feels like that pretty easy to practice.
If you are talking Sydney Royal junior judging then its hard because you really don't know what birds will be pulled out.Hence why you need to know the standards for all the different breeds.

Just some more thoughts.

Have a look at Ross Summerell's "Judging exhibition poultry" thread. I think he has exactly what you are looking for!

The students penned their birds yesterday. The gentleman at the local show were bending over backwards to help me, which was wonderful. Hopefully the student entered in the junior judging today, learns a lot and can pass on his new knowledge. I will also order Ross's books.
