Come along and take a gander at some of the fanciest poultry in the country with the Royal Melbourne Show Poultry Competition set to host 1200 chickens, ducks and turkeys over four huge days of competition. You would be clucking mad to miss out on the birds on display next to the Livestock Pavilion four the first four days of Show.
Some of the most educated chooks in the country will be competing in the Schools Poultry Egg Laying Competition. This features chickens raised by primary and secondary schools that have raised pullets to egg laying hens as part of their agriculture curriculum.
Still wanting more chooks? The First National Real Estate Animal Farmyard and theBiostime Animal Nursery will offer plenty of opportunity to pat a chook and perhaps find yourself a lucky feather to take home.
When you take a wander these terrific interactive spaces, keep an eye out for the farmers tending to their poultry that can answer all of your avian questions.
