20 Years of the
2015 marks the club’s 20th anniversary. On 29th January 1995, at Gipsey Bridge, Boston, the first meeting was held, where the decision to form the Lincolnshire Buff Poultry Society was made! There are some special events planned for later in the year, and one being held to mark the occasion, will be an open day at a Committee member’s smallholding where the only known flock of Lincolnshire Buff bantams is being developed. Members will be able to handle the bantams and progress will be discussed, and there will be a general discussion on the progress of the breed. This is not the first time that Lincolnshire Buff bantams have been produced. A strain was produced several years ago by Fred Hams, who passed them on to others to progress their development, but sadly, none have been heard of in recent years. Details of the open day will be in the next Newsletter, and this page will also be updated.
We had hoped to make an appearance at the Lincolnshire Showground Event on 29th March but had to withdraw due to public liability insurance issues.
In Autumn we will be holding a workshop open to anyone who feels they need guidance on selection of birds for breeding and showing. This will be held after the AGM lunch, and details will be made available nearer the time.
