With the increase of people keeping hens for pets it was only a matter of time before local village fetes started to introduce Hen Shows as village fete  attraction.

These Hen Shows have become so popular over recent years that it now now looks as though more and more village fetes will be replacing the traditional Dog Show with a Hen Show.

Even the village fetes that are  not replacing the dog shows completely could simply relegate them to a side attraction whilst the Hen Shows become the main attraction.

To help village fete organisers keep up with these trends existing dog show judges are being offered intensive training in how to judge Hen Shows so they know how to spot a good hen from a bad hen.
