They usually hold three shows a year - March, August and October and there was a good number entered.
I went to gain some contacts in Poultry. We are planning to expand the flock here with some different breeds and I wanted to know who to contact when the time comes. I definitely know we are going to have some Ixworth's as they are a dual purpose breed, so that if stock doesn't make show standard we can fatten them up for the house. And I was lucky enough to meet Joyce Taylor who breeds and shows Ixworth's and who took best rare breed with her three year old Ixworth hen.
Best in show went to a Wyandotte bantam, a delightful little girl -
Reserve Best in show went to an Old English game - sorry not the best photo, but she wouldn't stand still
Some more pictures from the day -
Lots of Call ducks on show
Norfolk Grey - another possibility for here
Gold Sebright - my favourite, so probably having some of these
All in all I had a great day, just wandering round talking to enthusiastic people about their chickens. Well done Norfolk Poultry club, a brilliant show.
