Steggles Sydney Royal School Meat Bird Pairs Competition


The Steggles Sydney Royal School Meat Bird Pairs Competition will run as a trial at your school before the 2018 Sydney Royal Easter Show and culminate at the Show by exhibiting your birds.

Competing Schools will receive a batch of ‘day old’ chicks that will be dispatched to your school.

The Poultry Coordinator will contact you with further dispatch details closer to the date. Please note schools in regional and remote areas may be 1 to 2 days later.

Schools are then required to rear the chicks and prepare the best two (2) females and two (2) males to compete at the 2018 Sydney Royal Easter Show.

The Competition is judged by experts of the commercial poultry meat industry and consists of three (3) components:

  1. Presentation of Exhibits: Live Competition of Meat Bird Pairs – Best male pair and best female pair to be exhibited per school
  2. Carcase Component: Meat Bird Pairs birds are processed (organised by the Sydney Royal Easter Show) and carcases are judged to commercial standards
  3. Project Component – students are asked to create a Powerpoint presentation detailing how the meat birds were raised and prepared for the Show.
