UnPaultry poultry at EPIC

While a more intimate and boutique event than last year, the Royal Canberra Poultry Show continues to be a source of delight to my family. The range of chook shapes and sizes is remarkable. Well worth the $3 admission.

With some of the birds, their raptor ancestors are quite apparent, with others the level of inbreeding suggest they have the survival characteristics of the average afghan hound.

I’ve owned chooks (mainly Australorps and Golden Sebright bantams) and they are not the brightest bulbs in God’s chandelier.

Having previously been the owner of a British Bulldog, I have stared complete stupidity in the face and made it my pet. I know stupid.

oh and poptop chooks are not as dumb as they seem, they know the hand that feeds them as they say

hi, all just thought i would mention for the person who said they always miss the show, that it always on the june long weekend. My daughter has blue/red,black/red and duckwing coloured aussie game bantams. Hi mum (qbn Gal). my daughter has practicly grown up at poultry shows and i have for atleast 14 years and it just shows how hard it is to finally get reserve champ waterfowl at a big poultry show

Ducks! We used to have Indian Runners and Khaki Campbells. Great with the snails, but they splurked everywhere (mind you teh peacocks are much worse in the landmine department but they eat spiders!). We had Langsheng bantams for a while too, until the fox got them one night (door was left open). They bred prolifically.

Bantams are great chooks, often quite amusing too. What colours are Game Bantams? She must be proud to have done so well, worth all that chook-washing!
