In an attempt to promote the breeding and exhibition of purebred poultry among Wisconsin’s youth, the Wisconsin International Poultry Club invites interested youth to apply for the Pullet Surprise.
The winners in each of the two categories will receive the following prizes: a pair of show quality purebred fowl, an incubator, a standard cage, feed, a copy of the American Standard of Perfection, a one-year membership in the WIPC, and a poultry carrier. All awards will be presented at the 2018 Wisconsin International Poultry Club Show. The birds awarded will be provided by the members of the Wisconsin International Poultry Club.
