We generally meet every third Tuesday of each month at 19-30 for 19-45 at the Radnor Hall, Bodenham, Nr. Salisbury, SP5 4EQ. This venue is 2 miles south of Salisbury just off the Ringwood Road, A338. Refer to map.
We aim to start on time as the main speaker may have travelled some distance to speak to us. Refreshment is available either during an interval or after the main speaker has delivered his/her presentation. This is followed by a poultry matters forum – a questions and answer session usually about bird health, breeding and housing, but any subject matter can be covered, tapping on the wide knowledge of members.
We run an egg competition (see under competitions) at most of our meetings and it is wise to come early to place your entries before the main speaker commences. A raffle with members donations helps keep the club on a sound financial footing.
Our next meeting is on Tuesday 19th February 2019 and is called ‘Pecking Order – A flockumentary from New Zealand’.

We had a lovely Christmas party with super food, a chance for a good chat and a fun (but slightly tricky) quiz!
There was a DIY meeting this month, with members sharing their stories and experiences of poultry keeping.
