Philippine Bantam Fancier’s Association together with CALABARZON Bantam Association and Philippine Orchid Society presents to the general public the 3rd annual fancy and chicken show . It was quite hot and sunny afternoon when the all breed and bantam show was held .

ribbons , trophies and plaques

I arrived past 1:00pm and the judging for the all breed category is being conducted. It started a bit late as the bantam association waited the entries coming form different parts of CALABARZON areas.

members and judges

The 2-day event activities includes an all breed / open breed competition and Serama Breed competition . There were about 70 to 80 types of chicken that were entered in the first day of competition.

Mr. Pher Nunag and his chabo chicken breed

During the first day of competition held yesterday , I met Mr. Pher Nunag from Kabalen Bantam Society from San Fernando City , Pampanga.  He entered a couple of  Japanese bantam chicken or Chabo in the competition.

chabo chicken walking

He started taking care of bantam chicken breed in 2014, when he was attracted to some small breeds of chicken . Unlike the larger counterparts ,bantam chicken and chabo requires smaller space and less food. They are also adorable and cuddly . The chabo breed  has a large upright tail that often reaches over the bird’s head. The wings angle down, and to the back, along the sides.

 

I also met the association president Mr. Vilmo Silviderio and he is quite happy with the attendance and number of entries had increase several times.

small chicken breed

The Japanese bantam and similar breed are enjoying an increasing popularity mainly because it is an ideal bird for people who are fond of their lawns and gardens because they are not good diggers as their short legs stop them from damaging the ground.

I saw a small chicken breed that was part of the exhibit , i do not know if the small breed was entered in the competition or it was just intended for exhibition purposes.
