This year's Wyandotte Club of Tasmania Show will be extra special as the annual event turns 40-years-old on Saturday, August 17.
The treasured show annually displays wyandotte fowls and bantams for judging and exhibiting.
About 280 birds are entered in this year's show, up by about 80 birds to what the show usually gets, according to Wyandotte Club secretary John Watson.
"That's just because of what it's [the show] become ... we've even got exhibitors from the mainland coming across for the show so that's even better," Mr Watson said.
