Adventures at the local poultry show

From monster roosters that looked like they were half eagle, to sweet bantams chooks with outrageous hairdos, chickens and ducks of all kinds were out and about today at the Dapto Poultry Club annual show.

The blue eggs of araucana chooks turned many heads...

As did the impressive ‘hats’ gracing some ducks...

 

What a fantastic glimpse into the amazing diversity of our feathered friends. We’ll definitely be heading back next year!

AH! I didn't realise it was coming up. A year or two ago I took my tribe of littlies, and they LOVED it. They were fascinated by a turkey, and some of the really large breeds. I'll have to keep an eye out for the show in Berry. How did you guys find out about it? :)

Oh, I try to avoid poultry shows. Just when I get my flock down to a manageable size I see another breed of chicken that I have to have! Last year I discovered Australorps. This year it was Silkies. I doubt my husband will even let me go to the state fair this year to see what they have at the shows :) Stevie @ruffledfeathersandspilledmilk.com
