School Egg Laying Competition
There are two School Egg Laying Competitions that cater for both Commerical Layers and School Exhibition Hens.
Class 1311: Sydney Royal School Purebred Egg Layers Competition
Schools competing in Class 1311 Sydney Royal School Purebred Egg Layers Competition are welcome to compete with their own purebred hens or can receive assistance by the RAS to source purebred hens.
Schools are then required to rear the pullets and prepare their best three pullets to compete at the 2021 Sydney Royal Easter Show.
The Competition is judged by poultry industry experts and consists of three components:
- Presentation of Exhibits: Three pullets are chosen by the school for judging. Birds are chosen based on exhibition qualities, uniformity and fitness for showing.
- Project Component: students are asked to create a Powerpoint presentation detailing how the pullets were raised and prepared for the Show. To be submitted online.
- Egg Laying Component: the quality of the eggs are laid by the three pullets (during the 10 days of Competition) are judged to commercial standards.
For more information, including 'How-To' guides and judging criteria, refer to the Teacher Manual.
