Welcome to the Ashburton Fanciers Society Website!
The Ashburton Fanciers Society held its first show in 1892, so you can see we have been in existence for well over 100 years.
We have held shows every year, catering for all types of poultry, bantams, pigeons, ducks and cage birds, to encourage competition.
Our show is held Mid-June each year and is one of the biggest exhibitions of this kind in New Zealand.
We also hold two Auctions (one in April, the other in October) to make available, fanciers extra birds, to be purchased by other interested people. This event helps fanciers and the general public to be able to buy good birds to enjoy. The Auction usually attracts up to 300 lots totaling approximately 1000 birds.
Our members are happy to help and offer advice on poultry to new and upcoming poultry keepers whether they are showers or lifestylers' wishing to enjoy a few chooks.
We have meetings on the 2nd Tuesday of each month except June and December. These are held in the Sports Hall, Tancred Street West, Ashburton. December is our Christmas get together and barbeque for all Members. It is held at a member's home.
Our next meeting will be held at the Sports Hall, on Tuesday 12th March at 7.30pm.
