Kent Poultry Club Spring Regional Show Report
Our Spring Regional Show, sponsored by Marriages Feed and Maytree Nursery was held in Boughton under Blean, Faversham village hall on Sunday February 10th.
Our judges Ian Sissons and Steve Fuller found themselves with quite a task ahead of them with an entry of 360 birds, 70 plates of eggs and 7 photographs to judge. This number of entries was a very pleasant surprise
We welcomed our usual exhibitors and some people showing for the first time in both egg and poultry classes. We hope they enjoyed their experience enough to join us again at both our summer show within the Kent County Show on July 6 and our Autumn Voucher Show on October 13th. Experienced members were on hand to give guidance and practical help. It was also nice to have exhibitors we haven’t seen for a while join us again.
Our show incorporated Regional/Area Shows for Sussex, Belgium, Rare Breeds and Call Ducks clubs which helped to swell our numbers and we look forward to hosting these classes again in the future.
Congratulations to Jane Boorman on winning Best in Show with her Speckled Sussex Bantam and Robin Creighton for Reserve Best in Show with his Silver Sebright.
