National Poultry Show 2011, Warwickshire
(November 20th/21st 2011)
 
It was amazing to once again go to the National Poultry Show.  There are so many birds there, and many knowledgeable people.  I attended the Araucana Club AGM, where we met everyone in the Club and asked many questions. Here are my results from the 'big one'!

Suffolk and Essex Poultry Club Autumn Open and Youngstock Show 2011 (October 8th)
 
For this show, I was due to take Boo, Tufty, Spice, George and Lulu.  However, a week before the show, in all the hot weather Tufty decided to throw all her feathers, so unfortunately she had to be withdrawn.  Boo and Spice were entered in Youngstock, and Lulu and George were in Juvenile.  I also entered a few eggs, as it was S+E's first egg show.

Tendring Hundred Show 2011 (July 9th)
Colchester Poultry Club
 
For this show I only entered Boo (my first hatch this year- and my resident cockerel) and Pepper.  Tufty and Spice were originally entered, but I decided that they were too small and young, and I would rather show them when they are older at the Autumn shows.
 
There was also an egg show there too, so I took a selection of eggs.
 
Here are my results:

Colchester Poultry Club Spring Open Show 2011 (March 5th)
 
In this show I decided to enter all three araucanas, as I now knew what I was doing (sort of).  So I took them all along to the Colchester show, and the results are below:

Suffolk and Essex Poultry Club Spring Open 2011 (22nd January)
 
My first show!  It ended up that I was the only person there with an Araucana, but that didn't matter, because I just wanted to see what happened at the shows.  I also only took one bird, as I wanted to see what it was like before I took more than one.
