As well as showcasing the different breeds of poultry, the Poultry Pavilion will be host to displays and information with the theme of eggs.

There will be kid's activities and also things to interest adults. Hold a baby chicken, do some craft, learn something about eggs that you never ever knew to ask! Do the 'Chicken & the Egg' multiple-choice trivia quiz (answers provided).

Come and chat to poultry enthusiasts and find out what showing poultry is all about.

  • In Any Other Breed classes (A.O.B.) the breed should be stated on the entry form so that, if FOUR or more birds are entered by at least TWOexhibitors, a class can be made for that breed prior to judging if not in the schedule. This can not be done on the day.
