I wonder how often we see them.

Should clubs have it in their schedule?

Should they just put it on by arrangement when they are contacted by a potential exhibitor rather than have something infrequently used in the schedule?

Perhaps it could be stated on the show information sheet that a demonstration class can be entered into the schedule after discussion with the Show Manager. That way anyone who would like to enter their birds has the option of doing so.

I agree with redjohanna, but would add that maybe club schedules should state that all AOC classes are for varieties and breeds that are in the Australian Poultry Standards 2 and if you are breeding a non standard breed or variety please contact the Show Secetary for further information on how you might show your non Standard Varieties.
Then the exhibitor can contact the show secetary and together they can establish whether a Demonstration Class could be provided for their breed or variety.

We always have it in our annual show.We know there are breeders who have pretty sebright colours.No one as yet has taken the opportunity to show theses birds but we will see.To get them recognized down the track they will need this sort of classes to have any hope with the standards committee

The Orpington Club of Australia took the big bold step in acknowledging that there are a number of non standard coloured Orpingtons out there by putting on Weird and Wonderful Classes at this years 2015 National Show. The birds were judged in two parts - firstly by the judges on their Orpington ness eg everything in the standard but colour -and secondly by popular vote of the people present in the shed for the prettiest colour. Interesting the winner of both judging methods was the same bird which was a wonderfully shaped ( for an Orpington) interestingly coloured hen (pics to come on the Club website). What it also meant that we only had standard ( Black, Blue White, Buff, Cuckoo) and developing standard colours ( eg Red, Buff Cuckoo, Lavender) in the Open section as against any random colour being entered in the Development Classes.

The Orp club needs to be highly commended on their well organised, open and supportive attitude towards new colour types in their breed.
More Breed Clubs should be like this. (That's not to say others aren't, but they are few).
