Judging is based on a 100 point score sheet.  The SONG is worth 70 points of the total score (divided into 10 points for FREEDOM and 60 points for RENDITION).  20 points are allotted for CONFORMATION and 10 points are offered for CONDITION.

FREEDOM means the bird's willingness to sing.  Every time a bird sings a full song during the first ten minutes, the Judge scores one point, up to ten points.  If the bird sings more that ten times, he can only receive the maximum points allotted to Freedom (10 points). If the bird does not sing until late in the judging period, he is not a free singer, though he can still be scored through his song value.  If a bird does not sing at all during the judging period, the bird forfeits the whole 70 points allotted to SONG.

RENDITION means the song itself.  The song of the American Singer should have just the right amount of blending of roller and border to be pleasing to the ear, neither too loud, harsh or monotonous, of the right quality, strength and variety, without any more that six chop notes in the song. 

CONFORMATION means the type compared to the model.  If the bird is not up to the standards set out in the model, points may be deducted.  Color does not enter into scoring, but the bird must have a well proportioned body and good plumage.

CONDITION is where the overall health, vigor, and cleanliness of the bird are noted.  Condition of the cage is also considered, that it meets the show standards for number and location of perches, bottom is papered, seed and water cups are clean, etc.

If a show has classes for hens, the total judging score would be 50 points, with 35 points allotted for CONFORMATION and 15 points for CONDITION. 

All birds entered in competitions must be bred, raised, trained and exhibited by MEMBERS ONLY of the American Singers Club in good standing.
