Hugh is well known for success with his Belgians and Dutch but was clearly over the moon when his white bantam Silkie pullet was moved to championship row as best bantam Silkie.
It was the first time Hugh had shown Silkie bantams and this achievement was a huge success. Having reared and shown the true bantams for many years he felt he wanted another breed for the challenge it gave. And what an achievement as from over 6000 birds in the show, he represented each breed he entered in their respective championships.
