Jack’s a win­ner

Central and North Burnett Times - - RURAL UPDATE -

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.
