The August meeting of the KDPC will be held at 7.30pm on Thursday 2/4/18 in the Horace Don Pavilion at the Kyneton Showgrounds on the corner of Mollison and Beauchamp Streets Kyneton.

"The speaker at this months meeting will be Kevin Smith who will talk on genetics in poultry. Apart from a period when he was overseas Kevin has been keeping and showing poultry for over thirty years. He is past chairman of the Victorian Poultry Fanciers Association and is currently President of the Old English Game Club of Australia.

Kevin is a geneticist working in research on pasture plants and uses his interests in genetics to try to improve poultry. He is particularly interested in working with rarer breeds and colours to get them to a standard where they are competitive at major shows.

Kevin won Champion Bird at this years Kyneton Poultry Show with a Minorca Cockerel"

Visitors are welcome. The club asks for a gold coin donation to cover the cost of supper.


Regards Ian B

Hi All,

The club would like to thank Kevin Smith for his informative presentation last night. I believe the thirty hardy souls who braved the chilly August evening enjoyed and appreciated how he showed the detail and complexity of this technical part of poultry keeping.


Thanks Kevin and keep up the good work.

Regards Ian B.
