Dunedin Poultry Pigeon and Cagebird Club’s 34th Annual Show will be held on the 29th & 30th May 2010 at Forrester Park, North East Valley Dunedin.

Exhibitors from as far as Blenheim regularly attend the show that has become a boon for Dunedin and the fancy. This year we have renowned Judge Ian Selby judging the game sections. Last time I recall Ian coming down this far was in 1990 to the 100th Anniversary of the Taieri Show.

As usual the show will be studded with celebrities coming and going in accordance with their busy schedules. Some point of lay pullets will be back again for plenty of eggs for you and your healthy family. Quantities to be confirmed. Check ODT.

There will be hundreds of top quality show birds available to see and some are usually for sale.
The Exhibits are Old Breeds going back to Europe and the 15th century in some cases. Most however most here trace Britain's quest to increase egg production to meet consumer demands over the last two centuries and the determinism of two World Wars.

As each breed was superceded in egg laying capacity it became redundant commercially. Most exhibits 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 and this year Mrs Isobel Robinson of the Milton Club has graciously offered her culinary services to the club.

Plenty of Raffles which may include a road or mountain bike.

We hope to see you there.
