Exhibitors from as far as Blenheim regularly attend the show that has become a boon for Dunedin and the fancy.

We are looking at holding a national show in the near future dependent on ballot.

As usual the show will be studded with celebrities coming and going in accordance with their busy schedules.

The point of lay pullets will be back again for plenty of eggs for you and your healthy family.

There will be hundreds of top quality show birds available.

These are OLD BREEDS going back to the 15th century in some cases. Most however trace Britain's quest to increase egg production to meet consumer demands over the last two centuries.

As each breed was superceded in egg laying capacity it became redundant commercially. Most are kept for their colours and aesthetics and bred to a scale of standards set down by an overriding body such as the New Zealand Association of Poultry clubs.

Food prepared in a licensed kitchen will be available. Raffles and Lucky Door Entry, so keep your ticket handy after you leave the show. We have not decided on a prize yet but it will be generous in keeping with the club ethos.

We hope to see you there.
