No, was only down there a couple of days. Pretty miserable as I had a raging chest infection happening at the time. Picking the birds up this Thursday.

Did well with the White Langies - Best Male & Female. Two 2nds with the Blues. Didn't take any Blacks although in hind sight I had a pullet that might have been competitive.
Took out Champion Duckwing Modern Game with a pullet which was a bonus.
Champion Standard & Bantam Spanish but no competition!

Fact - the turkeys are not hybrids.

Also if only pure bred birds were entered you would only have ...

* Jungle fowl - the father of all poultry
* Mallard ducks - the father of all duck breeds except muscovies
* Muscovy ducks
* Turkeys
Guinea fowl
* & if they exist, greylag geese.

That is is all the true pure bred birds out there.

All the rest are derived from these genetic pools.

What a poor show it would be.

Is this what the critics are pushing for?

thank you to the moderator for helping me withthis post. :thumbs:

Whoa!! Nobody said turkeys were hybrids the post was merely saying maybe splitting the show. Just an opinion nothing more. I don't think anybody is running down the Sydney show, just whether the commercial hybrids belong. Again just an opinion.

Lets look at the breed that won Champion bird of show. A Sussex . A breed known in Britain for at least 2000 years! I reckon thats long enough time around to be recognised as a pure bred

well pick up day has come around already. congrats to all the schools who did very well. There was even a school from Melbourne who entered eggs and meat chicks. They did not place but had a great time compeating.

to all the champions winners congrats.

I find it interesting that some who did not attend this years show can have an opinion on what went on.HMMMM


safe teravelling to all. I am leaving at 2am to head off to sydney to pick up my birds.

I hope to see you all next year.
Hopefully next year we will have 100 schools with many more from interstate. Also many more victorian exibitors as well.
