The CHB Lawn Show is one of my favorite events!

Here are a few good reasons to take part in the Lawn Show:

1. No pressure! Its a smaller show in a very relaxed setting. (an open shed) It might feel less intimidating for those who are new to showing.

2. It’s easy to prepare your chickens for a show in the summer. Pick a nice warm day, a few days before the show. Wash and rinse them in tubs outside and put them in a cage where the warm breeze will dry them naturally. They will look fabulous for the show! sunny

3. Its an awesome opportunity to get professional feedback from a very experience and knowledgeable judge. Our own Rico Sebastianelli really knows his stuff, and with fewer birds to judge, he will have time to answer questions and offer his expert opinion on the birds you entered.

4. Remember, CHB has been chosen to host the Canadian National show in November! This summer Lawn show is also an APA sanctioned poultry show and will be a perfect trial run to get you geared up for the big fall show.

5. Fun for the whole family! Sunnybrook Farm is a perfect location because it's fun and interesting for everyone in the family. From antique farm equipment to a variety of farm animals, everyone will be entertained - whether they enjoy looking at chickens or not. tongue There is a concession on site as well. A great place to spend the day!

We hope you will plan to take part in the show and enter a few of your Chickens, Turkeys, Guineas, Ducks or Geese. See you there!

I just sent in my entries and I am really looking forward to the day! It is not only a great chance to show birds, but it is also a great way to meet other people share interests.

I am especially excited for the egg show and have a number of entries. I am especially happy for this class as many of my birds are not in show condition but they sure are laying pretty eggs!

Yes, its not the best time of year for many of the birds that have been busy in breeding pens. I think I'll be bringing more roosters to this show and maybe a couple of this year's older pullets that are getting to a good size now.
And yes, the egg show is a great way to take part if this year's chicks are still too young and the adults are looking too scruffy. Whatever you choose to enter, it's going to be a great day.

On the other hand if you started hatching early you may have some lovely cockerels and pullets to show! I sure do!

In my breeds I find the pullets are ready to show earlier than the cockerels.  I have some nice big pullets now that look like young adults, so I think I'll bring a couple to see what Judge Rico has to say about them.  The cockerels still look like teenage boys...almost ready for showing, but not quite there yet.  But they'll be ready for the big fall show for sure!

Will you have some of your bantam Dark Cornish at the show, Sue? I really enjoy seeing those solid little bricks!

I am looking forward to it too. I have some late last fall pullets I would like to get an opinion on, and some very nice young cockerels to show. Becky has a nice white chantecler rooster to show and maybe a couple of white pullets. This really is the easiest show of the year for breeders. Its only one day and its warm (or hopefully so) but under a shelter it really is a very pleasant show. I encourage any of you with birds you are planning to breed to take this opportunity to have them professionally assessed. Hope to see you all there, even if you don't show, come out and see what everyone else is working on.
