Belgian bantams the show’s feature breed
Touted as being as sweet in nature as the chocolate their homeland is famous for, the Belgian D’Uccle is the feature breed in this year’s poultry section.
Originally from Uccle in Belgium, the bantam variety can be mottled, blue, white or golden in colour. Waroona Agricultural Society member and Poultry Club treasurer Ken Landwehr said he was looking forward to exhibiting the heritage breed.
Mr Landwehr said his daughter was the one who started his interest in the small breed.
“They have beautiful colouring, feathered feet and a very docile nature,” he said.
Exhibiting birds must be admitted to the Poultry Pavilion between 7am and 8.30am on show day.
Judging commences at 9am, with presentations at 2pm.
