    Welcome - where are you located?? The practical poultry magazine usually lists upcoming shows, what about your local poultry club?? Sue

    In Cumbria where I am there are quite a few such as Penrith Show, Skelton Show, Hesket Newmarket Show these are just a few near where I live but it depends where you are and how far you want to travel there are also Poultry Sales in which large numbers of poultry are showed then sold and you can meat a lot of experienced poultry keepers. Carlisle have poultry sales on the following dates this year: 22nd Feb, 19th Apr, 20th Sep. Longtown auction also has poultry sales throughout the year. Hope this helps [​IMG]

    Yes I enjoy going this February will be the 4th one at Carlisle I've been too and plan on selling my Muscovy ducks there. They have a website called Harrison and Hetherington and go along the top to feather, the top price at last years September sale was a pair of Buff Orps for £130!!!!!!
