Kent Poultry Club will once again be staging an Exhibition and Show of poultry and eggs at Kent County Show. The display will include a variety of Pure Breeds of poultry, chicks, and ducks.
The theme for this year is “Poultry Keeping in the Garden”. There will also be a Tombola and the popular selection of Hatching Eggs for sale.
Our Charites this year are Cancer UK and the Disabled Gardening Trust.
The Educational section will include talks and demonstrations to cater for all ages, ability, and interest, from beginners to the more experienced poultry keeper. Subjects covered will include welfare, breeds, question time, poultry showing, egg showing, incubation and hatching.
Kent Poultry Club is committed to encourage the younger generation into the world of poultry keeping. We are delighted to welcome pupils and staff from St Edmond’s School Canterbury and Kent College Canterbury. They will be joining us to gain experience in poultry keeping, welfare, and the exhibition of eggs and poultry and displaying their recent school projects.
On Saturday, we stage an Open Poultry Show which includes classes for all recognised Pure Breeds of Poultry which is run in accordance with PCGB and latest DEFRA rules. There will be speakers on hand to explain the process of preparation and judging of the poultry, and what it takes to breed a bird capable of winning Best in Show.
The Regional Open Egg Show follows on Sunday. This section grows year on year with many additional classes added. Speakers will explain what the judges are looking for in their quest to find the Best Eggs. Demonstrations of egg grading and candling will take place also a presentation on egg production in the commercial sector.
As you see, we have quite a lot to stage for our section at Kent Show!
We start setting up the weekend before and would really welcome some help from our members. This is our showcase event, not only for the public, but for you, our members.
