School Egg Laying Competition

There are two School Egg Laying Competitions that cater for both Commerical Layers and School Exhibition Hens.

Entries for the 2022 School Egg Laying Competitions have closed.

 

Class 1310: Sydney Royal School (Commercial) Egg Laying Competition supported by Australian Eggs.

Schools competing in Class 1310 Sydney Royal School (Commercial) Egg Laying Competition recieve 6 pullets at the beginning of term 1, courtesy of the Special Breeders Assocation.

Schools are then required to rear the pullets and prepare their best three pullets to compete at the 2022 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.
