The Bathurst and District Poultry Society held their annual All Breeds Show yesterday, showcasing some of the finest purebred breeds in the state.
Held at the Bathurst Showground, around 450 birds were on display from exhibitors as far away as Sydney, Goulburn and Gilgandra.
Bathurst and District Poultry Society president Michael Lane said the event was well received by everyone who attended.
"Considering the event ran in direct competition with the Royal Canberra Poultry Show, we were quite impressed with the number of exhibitors we attracted," Mr Lane said.
"The event is a great opportunity for poultry producers to exchange notes on raising various breeds."
A range of poultry breeds were on show at the event, including softfeather, hardfeather and waterfoul birds.
"The judges commented favourably on the quality of the birds and the best of each breed won prizes at the end of the day," Bathurst and District Poultry Society secretary Clayton Kirkham said.
"Since 2003, our club has prided ourselves on the promotion of purebred poultry, and it's always a pleasure to see the community take an interest in what we do."
This year marked the 16th staging of the All Breeds Show and the club holds three poultry auctions annually.
