Have you got a schedule, Atikin? If not - pm me your address and I get the secretary to send you one - or get in touch with her yourself via www.poultryclub.co.nz

Would be nice to see you there again.

I've entered 6 heavies and 2 banties plus 2 lots of eggs.

It was great... there were some lovely birds there and some equally lovely people.

That's good that you enjoyed it. Was this your first poulry show ever?

Not my first ever, but the first since I have had heritage breeds... and the first where I actually spoke to anyone!

Saw their was a frizzle class and I am quite excited as I love my wee frizzles so will be entering some of them :)
Although since frizzle isn't actually a breed what are the standards for them?

Do you mean the Frizzle class among the Fancy Bantams?

Any breed can have a frizzled version.

Large fowl frizzles have in the past been entered among the AOB class in the heavy breeds so if your frizzle is small I'd put it into the bantam class.

Enter her and you'll find out what the judge thinks of her :D

I've seen frizzles at shows and have never been able to make out the colour and breed. They still get placed so it can't be that strict :D
