Jack’s a winner
LONG-time exhibitor in the poultry section, Jack Fricke took out not only the grand champion bird of Biggenden Show but also the reserve.
The Maryborough exhibitor has been coming to Biggenden for more than 30 years and took out the title with his Old English game black red cock.
Judge John Rutledge, of Wondai, said the champion was outstanding, with quality feather cover.
“The reserve, a pit game, was a very nice bird but just needed a couple more tail feathers and would have been up to the top spot,” he said.
Son Cameron judged the junior section andwater fowl classes. The two judges said birds had to be clean and quiet.
Steward Merry-Anne Brennan said of the 250 exhibits there was more hard feather than soft feather while there was a big line up of bantam, modern game and pit game.
