Halifax Agricultural Show has a well established and well supported Poultry and Egg Section which offers an extensive choice of classes for the Public to enter. We have over 100 classes for Large Fowl, Bantam and Waterfowl along with over 35 Egg classes including a Photographic Class. The Section continues to grow year on year and as well as having established exhibitors we attract new exhibitors every year. We offer prize money, rosettes and corn along with a range of trophies for particular breeds. If you would like to show your birds or eggs for the first time and would like some advice on how to go about this, please give the section secretary, Mandy Bush a call.
