Egg Shows are not sanctioned by any governing body though the APA has a long history of hosting them. Historically egg shows were driven by egg quality while now they focus more on the decorations.
While shows are free to run their egg show in any manner they see fit, below are two documents that are in use in various parts of the country.
The first document outlines the contest based on the current British egg shows.
The second document incorporates some aspects of the old egg quality competitions.
Regardless of the format the show adopts, join in the fun!
