Fur & Feather Section

Our Fur and Feather Secretaries preside over a busy and crowded section.  No-one visiting the Fur and Feather tent could fail to be amazed by the sheer variety of birds, rabbits and cavies on display, and the dedication of their breeders to their welfare.

Take a look at our Egg classes too.  The judges deserve a prize, let alone the exhibitors!
