Kyneton is a rural town, 40 minutes drive north of Melbourne on the Calder highway. The Kyneton & District Poultry Club Inc has been going for many years and currently has over 100 members who keep a wide range of poultry. Some of us breed and show poultry whilst others keep poultry for eggs and pleasure. The Kyneton & District Poultry Club Inc. is a not for profit community based group and all proceeds go to the continued refurbishment of our pavilion and promotion of poultry in general. We are a club that welcomes new members of all ages, backgrounds and experience.
‘In the spirit of reconciliation the KDPC Inc acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. The clubs holds our meetings on Taungurung Country and pays its respect to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.’
Come and see what we are about!
Guests are made most welcome at our general meetings held on the first Thursday of every month. We usually have a guest speaker share their experience with some aspect of keeping poultry followed by questions and then general discussion with a cup of tea. Meetings start at 7:30pm at the Horace Don Pavilion at the Kyneton Show Grounds, corner of Mollison & Beauchamp Streets.
The club holds three auctions each year in Autumn, Winter and Spring at the Horace Don Pavilion in the Kyneton Showgrounds. The dates for the 2023 auctions are currently to be confirmed. Bookings for pens to sell birds need to be made in advance, check the auction page for details.
The 2022 annual show was held on Sunday 12th June, with over $1500 of cash prizes awarded.
