If you think you know your chickens, then this cockerel will eggs-spell your expectations!
Roving reporter Tom visited the Poultry Pavilion this afternoon and discovered a number of award-winning hens that had been gathering attention.
One notable bird that had show patrons gawping the most was No. 457, a light Sussex cockerel.
The birds are judged on various areas of criteria including size, grooming and overall condition.
No. 457 was awarded the Champion label and it is certainly evident why!
It stands at a decent 50cm tall and makes itself heard with it’s erupt of clucking as it joins in chorus with the rest of the feathered friends.
All of the chickens can be found at the Poultry Pavilion and viewed daily across the whole duration of the Sydney Royal Easter Show.
