Poultry Notes EGG LAYING COMPEITIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Deloraine and Westbury Advertiser — 29 July 1911

Poultry Notes EGG LAYING C0MPEIT10NS. j In a recent issue of the "Austral- ian Hen", some adverse comment is made on the large number o£ entr- ies ot white leghorns in the Tasman- ian egg ¡laying competitions. The third competition is now proceeding and in each case this has occurred. In the fust series, out of 28 pens, li (or just half) were white leghorns ; in the next series there were 16 out of 32. again half; in the current con- test the position is even worse, 20 pens out of 33 being occupied by this breed. One could quote several reasons why there should be some arrange- ment made to prevent this, and on the surface there does not appear to be any special reason for the prac- tice. lt may be urged that this fowl is so popular, that there are a big number of poultry breeders who go in for this bird and therefore a big entry as against other classes. But even if this were the case, it is not necessary to allot so many pens to them. It is generally recognised that white leghorns...
