I would love to see the judges put up a laced bird as BIS, I find it quite boring that we always see a white or some other self coloured fowl as BIS.

I know there are more obvious faults in a Laced fowl then there are a self coloured, but I would like to see one up as they are more difficult to get right & when you see a really good one, it deserves to be recognised.

I agree. It's similar with waterfowl - white birds get up more often then not. They are invariably great birds, and with lovely type, but it'd be great to see a little bit of colour and pattern get up a little bit more often :)

It does happen. I can recall a large silverlaced pullet and a silver pencilled bantam winning Wyandotte club shows. Columbians have also won a big show or 2. A columbian bantam pullet won the Wyandotte National at Albury just a couple of years ago and a columbian went very close again this year at the National.
