Join us on home farm the 17th November for our annual Rare Breed Poultry and Waterfowl Show. An competition for poultry enthusiasts, backyard hen keepers and general animal lovers alike to get involved in.

With over 70 classes that include turkeys, geese, chickens and ducks, there is a class for each of the much loved, yet sadly endangered varieties to take centre stage.
We welcome expert judges, who will award our Reserve Champion and Show Champion cups. We eagerly await this years entries and to see who the winners will be. With Wilbur the duck becoming a worthy first show champion last year, will a goose or perhaps a bantam hen steal his crown at this year’s show?
In addition to the official judged classes, there's a people's vote that lets our visitors choose their own Show Champion.
Join us in The Barn to meet all the characters on show and place your vote for your favourite feathered friend to become the Heligan Visitors' Champion.
With representatives from The Rare Poultry Society, RBST and Poultry Club of GB on hand too, you can be sure to go home inspired to keep poultry and hopefully some of the rarest breeds in the UK.
