Martin has been breeding chickens since he was 12 for Shows
FOR Martin Agnew, his chickens definitely come before their eggs.
The Bouldercombe chicken breeder keeps chickens purely for showing, and he bought 10 of his white wyandotte chickens to the Rockhampton Show with him this week.
One pullet took out first in her class.
Martin has been breeding chickens for almost two decades, since he was 12, and while he doesn't keep them for meat or for eggs he said purebreds like his were good egg layers.
He did bring along some chickens for sale at the show for interested buyers.
Martin is now involved in the Rockhampton Poultry Fanciers Club which is back up and running.
He said they were trying to get new members but were working on getting more pen space.
