Our Victorian Championship has again been run and won. On Saturday the 4th July 18 Australorp exhibitors penned 100 birds in competition for the title of Champion Victorian Australorp.
Congratulations to Brian Newell on taking out the Champion Australorp breeder of Victoria, having the Champion bird in show. Brian also sealed the deal with reserve Australorp in Show and was a very happy man.
Brianís pullets went 1,2,3 in their Standard class containing 27 birds which was a fantastic effort. Well done must also go to George Norman who in a class of 12 Standard Black Cockerels placed 1,2,3.
We were also lucky enough to have birds entered from the Summerell Bros in Queensland. Thanks Ross. The Cockerel of Rossís took out Champion bantam. Well done to John Hunt who with a White Pullet took out Reserve Champ Btm.
A huge thankyou from all of the members to our Judge Mr Denis Dowdle.
