The National Poultry Show will be in Telford between December 2 and 3.

The Poultry Club of Great Britain's (PCGB) National Poultry Show, seen as the poultry equivalent to Crufts, generally attracts entries in the region of 7,000.

In recent years poultry keeping has become hugely popular in the UK, with large numbers of people up and down the country keeping a few hens in their back garden for eggs and entertainment.

Welcoming this years show, PCGB chair Louise Carpenter said: "Like poultry fanciers and hobbyists across the UK and indeed further afield I am hugely excited for our upcoming national show, which will again be a showcase of some of the very best exhibition poultry, be that chickens, ducks, turkeys, geese or indeed eggs, that this country has to offer."

"Like the PCGB, this event is not solely for the seasoned poultry fancier, and with so many amazing exhibits and stalls making up this years show, as well as a vast sales section, it is sure to prove to be a hit for anyone with an interest in poultry."

The Poultry Club of Great Britain, founded in 1877, is a registered charity existing to safeguard the interests of all pure and traditional breeds of poultry including chickens, ducks, geese and turkeys.
