The Salt Spring Island Poultry Club was formed in 2009 and is a club for local breeders, backyard flock owners and pet owners of any type of poultry. Our members share, learn, promote, and encourage each other in a family-friendly and social atmosphere.

Over the past years our club has continued to grow, with almost 600 Poultry enthusiasts in our group.  The Salt Spring Poultry Club organizes live and virtual educational events, as well as runs the Salt Spring Island Fall Fair Poultry Show, the fair “Chicken Races”, a live bird auction and fun “egg smash” for the kids at the Fall Fair Event.   We are one of the highest attended exhibits at the fair, and host the largest number of volunteers providing education and entertainment to thousands of attendees.

Huge appreciation to SaltSpring Island Windsor Plywood for their generous support of our event! This support allows us to welcome a travelling judge, and provide additional prizing to our participants! We know keeping poultry is expensive, and we hope this additional prize money will help our poultry enthusiasts feed, house and continue to work on their breeds!
