The ancestor of all poultry breeds was a small bird living in the forests of Southeast Asia. Some of these Jungle Fowl are still bred in captivity and occasionally appear at shows.
However, the Jungle Fowl has been developed into hundreds of breeds and colours for fighting, meat, egg-laying and pets. It is probably the most diverse of all domestic livestock in utility and number of breeds.
Come to the Berry Show and see how breeding has changed the Jungle Fowl and the Mallard duck into many breeds of attractive and productive livestock for farm and backyard.
Berry Show is also a good way to view the various breeds and to talk to the breeders. Discover which breed would be most suitable for you. This is a fascinating hobby, particularly since poultry have a short generation cycle and can be contained within a relatively small space. You may even find that you want to join “The Fancy”.
