Poultry at Wensleydale Show Online

Here you will see many breeds form a wide selection of poultry – full size hens for meat and egg laying popular with the farmer`s wives as one of the first farm diversification enterprises to tiny calling ducks used to lure wild ducks for the sporting shots.

CHAMPION OF SECTION is awarded to P3-19 – Best bantam

Congratulations to Richard Brittain

“I want to again thank the committee for inviting me to judge the poultry section within Wensleydales first Online Show. With so many poultry shows across the country sadly cancelled this year, virtual shows will be the way forward and the set-up of this show was incredibly straight forward and easy to navigate. Thanks also to everyone who entered – with the number of entries far exceeding my expectation! And congratulations to the owner of the OEG Bantam male, named as my Champion. Had 2020 been a normal year, I am certain that this bird would have been similarly successful in the show pen.”  (Judge Jed Dwight)

1st a Lovely Cuckoo Cochin showing desired shape and colour. 2nd a very stylish White Crested Poland male. Tail carriage plenty high enough in the photo. 3rd a lovely Barnevelder male, losing the lacing further down the breast, and serrations a little crowded. Overall a strong class of birds, other notable birds were the Light Brahma female, and the Partridge Silkie male.

1st a good example of a White Runner, Good strong, straight bill. Will look better once fully through the moult. 2nd a strong Toulouse Goose, still coming through the moult, colour looks a little pale underneath. 3rd a lovely type Abacot Call female, a little heavy in colour on the breast, and would benefit from more colour along the flanks. A few Calls in the class with longer bills than would be desirable in the show pen, and some young birds that still need time to mature.

Best bantam


The bantams are often small versions of their full size cousins – popular as backyard egg layers they earn their keep still today. You will see a fascinating array of colours, markings and textures.

RESULTS: 1st: Richard Brittain P3-19, 2nd: Tori Simpson P3-31, 3rd: Ellis Heeley P3-14
1st a super stylish Old English Game Bantam, short in the body with plenty of bend in the leg & strong shoulders. 2nd a very nice, typy White Pekin male with plenty of tilt, only slightly spoilt by one long serration on the comb. 3rd a very good Black Leghorn pullet that looks at 12 o’clock. The comb is erect for longer than I would prefer, only falling to one side at the last serration, although I expect this will alter with age. An incredibly strong class with some 63 entries and many good birds going unplaced.

Plate of three eggs


The plate of eggs is an extremely popular class in the live show. The judge is looking for a perfect presentation of 3 identical eggs in colour, size and shape with no blemishes in the shell. On live show day they will crack an egg and judge the yolk and white on colour texture and symmetry.

RESULTS: 1st: Jessica Stewart P4-13, 2nd: Janine Aldred P4-11, 3rd: Harriette Alderson P4-9
The Egg Classes were probably the hardest to judge, with the angle of the photo completely changing how the shape of the eggs look, however, there looked to be some very good exhibits, which I placed as follows: 1st the best shaped eggs on show, although the shell texture could be better. 2nd better texture to these eggs, although a little rounded at the tip, and flat on the sides compared to the winners. 3rd similar to 2nd place plate, slight mottling on top egg.

Sam Turners

Sam Turner and Sons Ltd was established in 1931 by Sam Turner and his son Eric at a small warehouse in Eston, Middlesbrough, specialising in agricultural and horticultural products, they took their wares to the local markets in the area. With rationing and blackouts during the war years, travelling between Eston and the markets became problematic, so the business moved permanently to Boroughbridge Road in Northallerton. In 1946, Sam Turners moved again, this time to Quaker Lane in Northallerton as bigger premises were needed.The move to Quaker Lane was accomplished with a lot of help from the local people. They stayed at this site for 80 years until In 1983 Sam Turner’s had once again outgrown its site and moved to its current location at Darlington Road Northallerton.

The business became a limited company in 1947 when Sam Turner’s sons – Eric, Charlie and Bill were made directors. Eric’s two sons, John and Michael, continued the family tradition by joining the company on leaving school, and they were made directors in 1973. Their sons, Sam, Charlie and Ben Turner have now joined them in the business, taking the directorship of the company into the next generation. Sam Turner and Sons Ltd. has continued to expand and has become a valued and much-loved store for both farmers and the general public. The business has managed to survive and grow for more than 85 years. This is a family business that continues its strong link with the local farming community. By continually increasing our product range both in-store and at sam-turner.co.uk, as well as adding new sites at, Piercebridge, Leyburn and Stokesley, we hope to extend our famous commitment to quality, value and excellent service out to you.

‘It is our pleasure to be supporting a local show in our community, 2020 has been a challenging year so far and it is great that the show can still continue by moving online, we are proud to be involved’
