Congratulations Zebs and pjh! You are definitely entitled to brag! Very well done!

If you or anyone else can get some photos too that would be wonderful and perhaps you could also add them to that thread in Exhibition Poultry: 2013 Show Pictures and Results - Add yours here.

Did you know that we now have a category in the Gallery for such pics as well: Poultry Gatherings. Note when uploading to that that there is a separate subgroup just for the Canberra 4-yearly National event. ;-)

The auction (a live call auction) was a great sucess. The atmasphere, competation from the buyers was electric. Somthing you do not get from a silent auction. There was a very large croud in attendence for the auction. The photos by Robert Johnson were of A1 quaity giving the buyers a good look at the pen on offer. well done to the whole team . :thumbs: :thumbs: :thumbs:


The top price per bird: Was for a Pair of White Touluse which sold for $3,300.00 which equates to $1,650.00 each. There were several bidders after them. I belive a new Australian record for selling poultry by auction ( happy to stand corrected) passing the muscovy duck sold at Sydney several years ago for $770.00
Note: Both birds were owned by the same breeder. Well done Micheal Peel master water fowl breeder. A fitting reward for all of your hard work. .

The other entries sold well with 95% clearance of all birds offered.

Turkeys were in high demarned as was all the Victorian water fowl.
A large offering of silkies in many colours from several breeders were keenly sort ofter.
I am sorry but as I do not have access to the sale sheets i can not quote prices. I am hoping to receive a copy of the sale sheets in the future so I can post prices.

Several buyers has stated that they will now be breeding with their purchuses so that they can show in 2014,

NOTE: Leading poultry judge, exibitor, breeder,
Mr Pat Burchell was made a legion of the NSW Royal Show. 1 person each year is given this honour. This time it was a great poultry person with 60 plus years of showing, judging behind him. a well deserved honour. more detils about pats award can be found in the land news paper weeks out thursay 28th .

thanks to all who were there. see you all next year.

Congrats to all those who's birds got up, I recognised only a few names from here, but in particular Peter, Pam and David.

I took a few photos on the phone, but they are really shocking. Phone combined with trying to shoot through the bars, and dodge people walking past, they are mostly not worth showing.

Just my luck, seems this year was a bit light on some of those rarer breeds I'd hoped to see a couple of examples of side by side. There were only the three Spanish, though one was a blue bantam, so that was rather cool. Also very few minority colour Hamburghs. But I hear that those two breeds might be very well represented at the RPBA show in Maitland tho :)

Thanks to everyone for going to the trouble of preparing and benching your birds, they made a great display, and I can't wait for next year.

Great to see for once that some judges had the fortitude to put a coloured bird particularly pleasing to see a Sussex bantam. All too often judges take the safe option of putting up a single coloured bird.

I've just learned I will be there on the last day. So they'll still be there on the last day?

Can anyone tell me if it's crazy busy on the last day because it's kids day?

afterall the bellyacking on another thread about the white geese let me state this.

It is an honour to call the sydney show auction. It is also a honour to be able to sell all the birds offered by some of the top breeders and show legions who offer them up for sale and when you get a record price for a person it is great and when that person is a friend it is even better.


It is a shame that most of you will never feel the pride of calling a live auction and achiving a record price, the adreniline rush, the crowd, the atmasphere is electric. The heat of batle between the buyers.

calling a live auction is the oldest profesion dating back to the Babalyons and what makes it even better is it is a love job.

I urge all exibitors to put atleast 1 pen of birds into the sale next year. I offered 2 pens this year my self. just to help the sale along.
