2016 Schools Poultry Competition

Why should your school be involved?

"I firmly believe that being part of the competition has had an incredibly positive influence on the welbeing of our students. The sense of pride in having our chickens, their eggs and  poster at the Royal Melbourne Show is wonderful and I'm sure everyone throughout the area knows that we have prize-winning chickens at our school! It is a great competition to be part of!"
