Gosford Rare Breeds Show and National Poultry Show

Andrew Kerr from near Fivemiletown and Neil Boyd from Clabby, who work together as Clogher Valley Eggs and Poultry, exhibited fowl at the National Poultry Show last weekend (16th & 17th November) and achieved some excellent results. 

Neil was awarded first place for his Barnevelder female which followed up his success at Gosford Rare Breeds Show in September 2013 when he was awarded the show championship for his Barnevelder Trio.
 
Andrew exhibited a Cream Legbar Pullet and was awarded Best Cream Legbar Female and Best Autosexing. 

This was very encouraging as it was a hotly contested class of 15 birds and resulted in his hen making it onto Championship Row for the Rare Breed Society.
