School Egg Laying Competition

There are two Classes within this Competition:

  • Class 1310: School (Commercial) Egg Laying Competition

  • Class 1311: School Purebred Layers Competition

The School Egg Laying Competitions have three major components:

  1. Presentation of Exhibits
    For the School (Commercial) Egg laying Competition, the RAS initially provides young cross bred Hy-Line Brown pullets in 2018 for the school to house and grow into laying hens by Showtime in April 2019.
    For Purebred Exhibits, three young hens under 12 months of age (pullets) owned by the School, are chosen for judging.
    Birds are chosen based on uniformity and fitness for showing.

  2. Project work:
    This is a written summary of all aspects of care and animal husbandry made by School Exhibitor to ensure best laying pullets and applies to both Competitions.

  3. Egg Laying component:
    The quality of the eggs laid by the three pullets (during the 10 days of Competition) are judged.

 

Entries Open

Entries for the School Egg Laying (commercial) competition and School's Purebred Egg Layers competition will open soon.

 

Judging

Judging of the Competitions components will take place at the 2019 Sydney Royal Poultry Show.

Success in all three components (project work, quality of the birds shown and quality of eggs collected during the Show) are the key to winning this competition.

The commercial egg laying pullets are Hy-Line Brown hens supplied by Supporter SBA (Special Breeders Australia).
