Welcome to the Reading and District Bantam Society!

The Reading and District Bantam Society was founded in 1947 and exists to encourage those keeping bantams in the area. Originally centred on Reading it now covers quite a large area with members from Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Surrey and some even further afield.

Our main focus is on the four shows that we organise during the year. We are always looking for new members to join us. Why not enter your favourite bantie in our next show - or perhaps some eggs?

Championship Show - 25/26 February 2017

Sadly we are having to cancel our second show this year.

The RDBS Championship show on the 25/26 February is a casualty of the latest DEFRA announcement on the 4th January.

DEFRA have extended the prevention zone until the 28 February and the ban on shows runs in line with this.

But watch this space - we are hoping to hold some sort of get together that weekend so we can meet up and get our poultry fix!

Members Show - Saturday 7th January 2017


Cancelled due to DEFRA Avian Flu Restrictions. 

We are now on facebook


Come and join us.
