Canadian Heritage Breeds is excited to be hosting an Egg Show at the Urban Farm Show on Nov 23-24th in Red Deer.

The Eggs in the Egg Show are going to be judged on uniformity of shape, size and colour and quality of the egg shell.

There is a 3 egg and 6 egg classes in either White / Tinted Brown / Coloured / Dark Brown categories. Both Bantam and Largefowl divisions.

There is also Single Egg Classes for Painted eggs and Decorated eggs. The single egg classes are judge on their artist talents.

The Eggs entered in the show must be on the judging table before 9 am on Saturday Nov 23rd. The entries maybe removed from the show hall after 3pm on Sunday Nov 24th. Entries are $3.00 per entry in each class.

I can't take any chooks, but maybe I will take some eggs. Lets see how the girls all settle and see if they are back laying by then!

I have some hens laying some lovely olive eggs but those hens are obviously not purebred. Can I enter them?

Would they not fit the 'coloured' category? Mine would probably be the green ones, so it is a good question.

I think so, but not a color any SOP hen produces!

The Egg Show welcome eggs from all birds. So Oliver eggers and other crossbreds are able to still compete in this section of the show.

I love Olive coloured eggs!!!

I'm just wondering if someone could tell me if a tinted color egg is more of a light brown and what would be considered brown. I'm just looking at my eggs and I'm not sure which class they would go into. Thank you
