** September Box Show 2011 **
This new event was held at Detling Village Hall and proved to be a very successful evening. There were 24 birds present.
Priscilla Middleton very kindly agreed to judge and, with her extensive knowledge of many breeds kept the exhibitors and members informed as to Breed Standards and reasons for her placings.
There were several Breeds represented, with some really promising birds and exhibitors having their first taste of showing which was the reason for staging this event.
The Box Show gives new and experienced exhibitors alike the opportunity of having their future show birds assessed and to eye up the opposition for the coming Show season !
Best in Show was a very nice Silver Partridge Dutch pullet bred by Jackie Bishenden. This bird was beautifully prepared and pen trained to perfection; she was drawn first of the evening and never stopped showing herself. A real credit to her breeder, well done!
