THE annual Nowra Poultry Club show on Sunday, July 20 is shaping up to be huge.
With less than a week to go, entries were well past the 500 mark and club secretary Judy Turner expects all 600 pens to be full by show time.
“The response to this year’s show has been amazing,” Mrs Turner said.
“Three weeks out, we already had 300 entries and the way we are going we might have to knock entries back, which is something we certainly don’t want to do.”
All varieties of poultry will be on display, ranging from the large Orpington breeds down to little bantams.
“There will also be a selection of ducks and guinea fowl. Something for everyone,” Mrs Turner said.
The show will also feature junior classes and egg classes.
Mrs Turner said there had been a real resurgence in people wanting to keep chooks.
“People are so keen to have a few chooks of their own,” she said.
“And we will have lots of members at the show who will happily pass on their expertise or answer any questions people may have.”
The show will open at 9am and run until 3pm at the Nowra Showground poultry shed. A canteen will be provided and entry is free.
