They are generally quiet and docile, but there is some variation, as one would expect.

In 201, following an earlier outbreak of Avaian Influenza ,  the Poultry Show became a Poultry Exhibition with great success.  This ensures that the health and well being of exhibited poultry would not be jeopardised as all displays come from the same breeder.

In 2018 the exhibition grew in size and now features both Male and Female poultry breeds in a single pen with where applicable, chicks.

Above each breed is information pertaining to that breed and a separate information booklet is available on request.

The exhibition not only features chickens, but also other poultry including ducks, geese and turkeys.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Rabbits” css=”.vc_custom_1570010724501{background-color: #fcf7eb !important;}”]Due to a continuing situation with the Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease there was no show in 2017 or 2018. It remains to be seen if there will be one in 2019.

The following statement from the British Rabbit Council refers:

‘The BRC strongly recommend that members vaccinate against the RHD2 virus.There are new outbreaks being reported both in exhibition studs and pets, vaccination will help to prevent the spread and contain this deadly virus. ‘[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Dog Show” css=”.vc_custom_1534106676342{background-color: #fbf2de !important;}”]The Annual Bridgend County Show Fun Dog Show, takes place at 1pm on the Sunday of the show.

Registrations open at midday and you can register on the day. No advance bookings are required.

DOGS IN CARS ON HOT DAYS

Show Schedule Notice

Your dog is vulnerable and at risk during hot weather and the Kennel Club offers the following guidance to help guide you through the do’s and don’ts travelling to and whilst at Kennel Club licensed events.

  •  When travelling to a show please take a moment to consider whether the route to the show is on a busy holiday route, and leave earlier to avoid increased time in traffic jams.
  • If your vehicle is not air-conditioned seriously consider whether travelling to the show is a good idea at all.
  • The vehicle should be as fully ventilated as possible, and plenty of stops should be taken, with lots of water available to drink.
  • Ensure your dog is not sitting in full sunlight. There should be plenty of free flowing air around the dog.
  • When at the show, never leave your dog in the vehicle.
  • Keep the dog in the shade – take your own shade, for example a large umbrella and always have plenty of water available to drink so your dog stays well hydrated.
  • Avoid your dog taking part in unnecessary exertion, or from standing in exposed sunlight for extended lengths of time.

Remember, if you feel hot your dog is very likely to feel much hotter and dehydrated, and this could lead to dire results. Please look after your dog’s welfare.

Warning: if your dog is found to be at risk, forcible entry to your vehicle may be necessary without liability for any damage caused.

Anyone whose dog is entered at a Kennel Club licensed event should take all reasonable steps to ensure the needs of their dog(s) are met, and should not put a dog’s health and welfare at risk by any action, default, omission or otherwise.

Breach of Kennel Club Regulations in this respect may be referred to the General Committee for disciplinary action under Kennel Club Regulations.

Right to refuse entries. Exhibitors/competitors are reminded that show societies have the right under Kennel Club Regulations to refuse any entry.
