Visitors to this year’s 25th Royal Welsh Winter Fair will be treated to a spectacular display of some of the finest specimens of poultry from across the UK in the Winter Fair Poultry Show.
First established in 1992, the championship status show held under the rules of the Poultry Club of Great Britain, has long been a main attraction on the second day of this popular, annual event, which takes place this year on December 1st-2nd, in Llanelwedd.
With over 260 classes, special prizes and awards last year’s show attracted 1,050 entries from across the UK, all hoping to get their hands on the Royal Welsh Champion Shield and the Poultry Club’s Gold Award.
Breeding poultry for showing is a responsible, yet fun activity and is often a favourite with younger competitors. Within the schedule there are eight classes specifically for 12-16-year-olds, plus another seven classes for 5-11-year-olds.
