2017 Wyandottes Queensland Annual State Championships

Entrants from near and far (including WA, northern NSW and Charters Towers) came to the Nanango Showgrounds on the 27th May to compete in this year’s Wyandottes Queensland Annual State Championship Show. The Wyandotte breed originates in North America and is named after a native American Indian tribe. They are very eye catching birds and can lay more than 200 eggs per year. They also are content and docile birds, accustomed to cold climates due to their ancestry so they will continue to lay all year round.

We want to wish a big congratulations to Riverina customer Kate Barritt of Layers of Lace Heritage Poultry Stud in Kingaroy. We are so proud of her success at The Qld State Wyandotte Championship. The beautiful bird pictured was very successful this year and doesn’t seem to mind the publicity. She is fed on custom diets manufactured by our Murgon branch and sold through our local Kingaroy Branch. Well done Kate for being the most successful female exhibitor two years in a row.

Thanks to everyone that exhibited and visited the show and the organisers for putting on another great event. A big congratulations to all the successful breeders and those that competed.
