We are a poultry club based in Tasmania who are dedicated to promoting the keeping, breeding and showing of rare breeds of Chickens, Waterfowl and other varieties of rare poultry in Australia.

Our club has for the last ten years been promoting our endangered breeds by raising the awareness of their plight and promoting the keeping of them via events, sponsoring of awards at shows nationally, our official list of rare breeds to keep the public and fanciers informed about which of our breeds are threatened and much more.

The aims and objectives of our club are;

- To increase interest in rare breeds and discussion among existing poultry breeders by distributing a regular newsletter to interested poultry clubs, members and other organisations.
- To make rare breeds easier to obtain by maintaining a registry of birds wanted and for sale through a designated exchange steward.
- To assist in maintaining the genetic diversity of domestic poultry for future generations
- To provide a pathway for new and existing rare breeds to be recognised in the Australian Poultry Standards.
