NOTES:
* To give an idea of size, At least one photo must include a standard 375ml aluminium can that has a complete view of the bird standing (coca cola, fanta, solo, beer etc.)

* Image size for each photo must be high enough resolution to be enlarged full screen for detail (if unsure, bigger is better)

We are very pleased to announce that Daniel Lawton of Lawton Park has offered to sponsor this Online Poultry Show.

He will be donating a subscription to Chicken Chat for the Champion Bird in Show and also to the Champion Junior Bird.

Backyard Poultry will be donating a backyard poultry mug to the Reserve Champion Bird in Show.

Next time you have a fowl in good feather don't forget to get the camera out. :thumbs:

Even though March seems a long way away, we are accepting entries from now until the closing date.

Now is a good time to get a few shots of this years birds before summer and they start to moult.

Update:

We have decided to extend the deadline for this show to the end of May. The reasons are that a lot of birds are in moult still and extending to May allows people to take photos of birds when prepping for early shows.

Keep your cameras handy and send in your shots whenever you have them until then.

Best wishes!
