If it clucks, quacks or cock-a-doodle-doo’s you can expect to see it in Waroona this month with the Rare Breed and Waterfowl Spectacular coming to town.

The Waroona Poultry Club are keen to host there first poultry show in years and are calling for entries from across the region to fill out their schedule.

The show is set to hit town on July 21 at the Waroona Poultry Pavilion with all manner of rear and exotic breeds set to be on show.

However, with entries closing on July 11, prospective showers need to get in quick.

Poultry Club treasurer and secretary Ken Landwehr said he was excited to bring the spectacular show back to town which hadn’t seen a show in some time due to COVID interruptions.

He said entries are only $3, or $2 if you are a member of the club, and anyone who enters has the chance to win a trophy.

The club are especially keen for younger members to enter, with the juniors division being particularly important.

“They’re going to be the future of the club,” Mr Landwehr said.

“It’s like footy — your core base always starts with the juniors.”

Beyond those competing birds, Mr Landwehr said the event will be a great opportunity for the public to find out more about the hobby of keeping poultry and waterfowl.

“If the someone wants to get into chickens, they can come along and see the breeds that they like,” he said.

Mr Landwehr said, to him, keeping chickens had been his salvation over the past years.

“Keeping chickens is calming and healthy for you,” he said.

“I just get so much joy from them.”
