Poultry stalwart finally lands Anglesey title


tải xuống (5) ONE of the most popular champions at this year’s Anglesey Show was poultry section stalwart Ky Thurland.

The Babell exhibitor, a mainstay of the poultry show scene in North Wales, had never won the supreme title at Anglesey before this week.

Rivals were delighted to see her claim the championship with a White Call Duck.

Dilwyn Green, of Penisarwaun, Caernarfon, said: “Ky is secretary of Caerwys Show, runs the Denbigh & Flint section and is a steward at Anglesey Show.

“She also prepares meals for judges at the Gwynedd Poultry Federation Show and at Oswestry Poultry Show.

“It’s not easy getting volunteers to run these events and without Ky many would be struggling. Her victory at Anglesey was a popular one.”

Dilwyn is himself an accomplished showman and he duly took the supreme male bird title at Anglesey with a Black German Langshan.

The hospital orderly also won best youngstock with the off-spring off a German Langshan that won the breed section at last year’s National Poultry Show, Stoneleigh – a bird once used a fox bait after being deemed too ugly for showing.

In total Dilwyn collected 10 firsts and 10 seconds.

In yesterday’s rabbit section, champion exhibit was a Silver rabbit shown by Phillip Williamson, of Castle Bunnies, Penrhyndeudraeth.

Despite being an experienced showman, it was his first supreme title at Anglesey.

Back home he keeps 80 rabbits. “It keeps me away from the pub,” he quipped

In the pigeon section, overall champion was regular winner Keith McIntosh, Abergele. Winning exhibit was a Nun pigeon which has already won at Cheshire Show this year.
