1. Survivability = number of day old chicks acquired – total mortality as a %
2. Average Body Weight = Total body weight / number of birds.
3. Feed Conversion = Total feed used (kg) total body weight.
4. Average Age = Age of chicks at day zero (day of hatch). Day trial completed.

The Competition has three main elements. They are as follows:
1. Presentation of Exhibits.
2. Egg Laying Competition.
3. Project Competition.
PRESENTATION OF EXHIBITS
Schools should select their best three (3) pullets for entry into the Competition.
Representatives for the Commercial industry have been appointed to Judge these birds to the requirements of the Egg laying industry.
EGG LAYING COMPETITION
Eggs will be collected on an accumulative basis for the first ten (10) days of the Show. Eggs will be collected each day and placed in a carton in a display cabinet. On Saturday 26 March 2016, the eggs will be judged using normal egg judging criteria. However, the number of eggs produced will not be part of the awards assessment. This is to encourage schools to possibly choose pure bred fowls for their project.
A worksheet will be provided as a guideline for students to complete or create their own record of performance.
Each Project will be judged by a representative from the commercial industry.
