17" is the record (last time I heard)

The NWTF goes by the "longest filament/strand" to where the "mesofibroplume" ([:-]GAK!) emerges from the skin of the breast.

As for me, I will check in with my paltry 10 3/4" (I'm still very proud of it though!)

10 3/5" is mine.
you have to watch the books,if it is 3 or 4 beards they add all of them together.thats kinda ,in a way not the right way to do it for the single bearded birds.
there should be a different scoring for them.

whatdaya think????
