the first poultry show off the south island season was hosted by the west coast club on the 14th-15th of may it was their biggest and best yet . With in excess of 700 entries. This season they had the duck special 170 odd ducks and a very good representation of rare breeds. With a number of breeder's showing there for the first time from other areas stating that they had a great experience and would be back again.

Yes not a bad team and they put on a good show. There was two south island titles up for grabs both female titles sicilian buttercup and North Holland blue which are my two breeds. plus twenty odd other south island titles. I got the north Holland blue title and second in the sicilian buttercup I entered five pullets only as my old birds were out of sorts thanks to the moult. so all and all I had a great time

We do not only have birds but also eggs, painted eggs, decorated eggs and a colouring in competition.

Next year - during the weekend of June 23rd to 25th, 2017, Christchurch will be hosting the New Zealand National Poultry Show so please watch this space.
