Preserving rare poultry . . .

Welcome to the Tasmanian Rare Breeds Poultry Club's official website

We are a group of poultry keepers, united in the aim to preserve Australia's wonderful types of chickens, waterfowl and all other varieties of rare poultry found in Australia.

We work to promote backyard poultry, preserve poultry breeds, encourage young (junior) breeders, standardise new breeds and varieties and advocate for poultry keepers.

Presently Tasmania has over 60 breeds and variety of chicken, duck, turkey, goose and guinea fowl in risk, which we work to promote via our annual show, newsletter, online presence and attending public events.
