Thanks.

Yes they are there for the total duration of the show

The worst day is judging day to see them which is the first day they are there any other day is fine

The first Friday (day after judging ) is a working day this year. Past years the first Friday was Good Friday which made it easier for people to attend, I know I won't be there but I am thinking about going up on the Saturday

Sydney show is now becomming one of the largest poultry show out there. 600 meat chicks went to the schools in NSW and victoria for this yraes comp, hiline gegg school comp is also goiong on as well as plenty of birds. the victorians are comming with some of the best water fowl out there and I belive more will come up to sydney each yearfrom now.

can not wait to be ther. 45 turkeys, heaps of geese no other royal has matyched this. 2012 65 turkeys benched aroyal record I belive.

bring the show on auctioneer

Just rock up to the Thursday night function,its fairly informal.Bird of show trophy is presented and a few short speeches but generally a pretty good night.Don't like your chances of touching up your birds Thursday morning before judging,in the past no one has been allowed into the shed.How are the birds coming along ? Mine are looking OK but the hot weather is not helping things.

Guy,

thanks for that I didnt know whether you could or not give them a final once over, we booked a motel nearby just in case you could, if you cant you cant simple as that. We have business in penrith on the thursday but We expect to be at the dinner.
the team is comig along very nicely, we may have to drop one that hasn't come up in feather but the rest I am very happy with. We wont embarrass ourselves.
hope to catch up with you there thanks again.

2 weeks tonight and all birds will be penned ready for judging the next day. Two weeks to go ...

The bantam pullets I've entered will be spot on. A large pullet laid her first egg today. Large cockerels, well still looking like big chickens. Bantam cockerels not much better but might look OK in two weeks.

I hatched earlier last season but we had a solid month where not a single maximum temperature was below 35 degrees. That had to set the birds back. Mind you the weather right now is perfect for conditioning and we finally have green grass. At least my birds haven't developed webbed feet. I imagine a few of the north coast breeders have had exactly the opposite set of conditions we inlanders have had to face.

We will give the final decision this sunday and then full on prepare those that are definitely on the short list, over supplied in one section and struggling to fill the class in another. Cant wait to get there and see how it all goes, been given lots of good advice and puttng it onto practice, hard though weighing up features from my level of experience, eg type better on one fowl and head and comb qualities better on another and only entered one in that class.

but again its all part of the learning curve and lots of fun.
