2012 - The Brahma and Cochin Club of Australia Annual Show

The Brahma & Cochin Club of Australia 2012 Annual Show was held on Sunday the 5th of August in Queenbeyan NSW. This year the annual show was hosted by the Canberra Queanbeyan Poultry Club Inc. (CQPC), as part of their 2012 Annual and Rare breed show.


We would like to thank the hard working members of the CQPC for incorporating our club show, and for being such fantastic hosts! Your friendly and dedicated members put together a well run and successful show. We felt very welcome and really appreciated your efforts to make our show such a success. Thank you also to the CQPC who generously donated a bag of feed for Champion and Reserve Champion Brahma of Show.

This year's annual show featured, for the first time, a Work In Progress class. Any colour variety, including non-standard colours could be entered if the breeder considered the bird to be a work in progress, i.e. the colour, type or certain breed characteristics weren't  correct for the Australian Standard of Perfection. Birds entered into this class were clearly identified on the pen as a WIP and did not compete against other classes for the major awards but were eligible to win Best WIP Cochin and Best WIP Brahma, Lance Hicks Memorial Award, Breeder of the Year and Rookie of the Year.


WIP gave exhibitors a chance to show the results of their hard work, receive constructive comments from an expert judge; help with planning breeding pens and working out where to next? The WIP class was very successful and proved to be popular, generating much discussion, and will be included in future national shows. Whether creating new colours or improving standard colours, this new class will also provide breeders with an opportunity to swap and sell birds that will help assist each other with our breeding programs.
