LUXTON FAIR SHOW REPORT

For the first time in many years, we had a nice little show come together at the Luxton Fair, Victoria, B. C. Even with the cloud and some rain over the Sept. 16, 17 and 18 weekend, the Poultry and Pigeon Show was enjoyed by Exhibitors and Public alike.

Growing from a pigeon display in 2015 by some local Breeders, the show in 2016 had Poultry, Pigeons and Waterfowl participating at an A.P.A. Sanctioned Poultry Show.

Ramona Trombley from Duncan, B. C., was the A.P.A. Judge for the Sanctioned Poultry
Show, which had three quarters of the Exhibitors participating for the first time.

Champion Standard was won by a first time participant, Theresa Sutton from Victoria, B. C. with her Black Ameraucana pullet. Reserve Champion Standard was won by Bruck Bickle from Coombs, B. C. with his White Chantecler cockerel.

Champion Standard by Junior went to another first time participant, Kylie Wilson, Victoria, B. C. and her White Crested Black Polish pullet. Kylie also took Reserve Champion Standard by Junior with her Blue Cochin pullet.

Champion Bantam was a Black Rosecomb cockerel and Reserve Champion Bantam was a Silver Laced Wyandotte pullet, both owned by Bruce Bickle.

Champion and Reserve Champion Waterfowl were both East Indies owned by Bruce Bickle. Young drake was Champion and old drake was Reserve.

Overall Poultry Champion went to the East Indie and Reserve Champion was the Black Rosecomb.

Pigeons were also well represented with Tony Correia from Victoria B. C. doing the judging. Fancies, Racing and Show Homers were all represented at the Show. Champion Racing went to a Blue Bar young cock and Reserve Champion Racing went to a Blue Check young hen, both owned by Wally Petrovic, Duncan, B. C.

In the Show Homers, Champion was won by a Red Check young cock owned by a first time Junior participant, Brooke West from Sooke, B. C. Reserve Champion went to a Red Check young hen owned by Bill West, Sooke, B. C. Brooke also won Champion Show Homer by a Junior.

Fancy Breeds were also well represented with the Champion Fancy going to an American
Baldhead Roller, Tort, young hen owned by Doug Roberts, Ladysmith, B. C. Reserve Champion went to an Oriental Frill, Blue Lace, old cock belonging to Brynn Morgan, Victoria, B. C.

Champion Fancy by a Junior went to Brynn Morgan, for her Oriental Frill, Blue Lace, old cock and Reserve being won by Brooke West, Red Check Show Homer, young cock. 2nd Reserve Champion by a Junior went to another first time participant, Emily Utzinger, Victoria, B. C. for her Brunner Pouter, Black and White, old cock and 3rd Reserve Champion went to Matthew Heck, Qualicum Beach, B. C. for a Classic Old Frill, Black Laced, young hen.

Pigeon Show overall Champion was the American Baldhead Roller owned by Doug Roberts
