OUR AIMS

The aims of the Canberra Queanbeyan Poultry Club are to promote and foster the keeping, breeding and showing of pure breeds of poultry. We believe it is important to keep intact, the breeds of poultry found in Australia.

We encourage those seeking to keep poultry in the district to consider selecting one of the many beautiful pure breeds available, rather than choosing to keep hybrid strains. In this way, the wonderful (and often rare) breeds of Australian poultry may be retained for future generations to enjoy.
