The Nationals are underway and I already had a preview today. I was surprised that almost all birds made it to the show despite the rain, wind, sleet and snow. There is an incredible variety of birds on show - around 2000.

Tomorrow, Saturday, the show will be open from 10am to 4pm. It takes place in the Sports Hall in Tancreds Road, Ashburton.

Had a visit to the national show on Friday 21. Despite snow, venue flooding, late judging due to jolly everything, I take my hat off to the organisers and the exhibitors for their determination. Excellent work Ashburton fanciers!!

Definitely trying circumstances.

some excellent chooks there.
some highlights for me:
A buff laced Wyandotte cock that's probably the best ive seen from that variety.
Nice bench of Minorcas, with an outstanding hen that won her class
an andalusion hen that's the best ive seen, a real beaut
and a drop dead wow factor Saxony duck

and congrats to Marina for picking up a champion certificate for her Salmon faverolle pullet!!!

Thank you - I think I have to post a picture of her. She's just arrived home.

I, too, think that the Ashburton Fanciers Society has put on a really good event and despite the rain, snow, flooding, gales, etc almost all cages were filled with beautiful chooks, ducks, pigeons, cats, etc.

Great photos. But are we looking at blue cochins with black shanks?? I had a pullet from the red rooster you bought from Roger that died. She had black legs so sold her. Maybe he's breeding away from the yellow they should be? Hope you had fun up there in chch, pity the weather was crap.
