*APA Mission Statement*
The American Poultry Association aims to promote and protect in every way both the standard-bred poultry industry and exhibition poultry hobby. At the same time, the APA aims to assist, encourage, and help educate the junior poultryman either in the practical value of standard-bred birds for the poultry industry or the esthetic value of standard-bred birds for exhibition. To that end, the APA has continuously published, since 1874, the American Standard of Perfection, which contains breed and variety descriptions for all pure-bred fowls officially recognized by the APA.
