Australian Poultry Forum™ commenced in June 2005 (Peacocks Australia Forum). The primary goal of the Forum was to promote & support poultry & poultry breeders in the form of a web discussion forum. Although Poultry based Forums were not a new concept around the world, in Australia their was no options available to poultry breeders for an Australian owned & operated web discussion forum with poultry information relevant to Australian poultry breeders. Australian Poultry Forum™ offered a connection point for poultry breeders from all parts of Australia including remote areas giving them the opportunity to talk to like mined people. Australian Poultry Forum™ was set up with Topic specific forums such as Chicken Chat & Peafowl Chat and many more allowing clear areas for members & guest to view and post in the poultry most interesting to them * 2005 Australian Poultry Forum™ held the first Photo Competition and was the first Poultry Forum in Australia to hold online Photo Competitions with prizes * 2007 Forum Merchandise was launched initially Polo shirts & Caps and now the largest range available from a poultry forum* 2007 the Forum Notice Board was launched * 2007 the Forum Photo Gallery was up-graded to the current Gallery * February 2008 we launched A.P.F Online Poultry Show with great success. Although the concept was not new in the U.K & U.S.A we introduced a unique version for Australia by offering Prize money, Trophies & Rosettes to the winners. A.P.F™ is the only poultry forum in Australia to offer such prizes in an Online Poultry Show * 2008 we launched A.P.F™ Breeders Directory * 2008 we launched A.P.F™ Online Poultry Show Gallery the only Forum to offer a dedicated Online Poultry Show Gallery * 2008 we launched the unique A.P.F™ Online Gazette, a semi automated, fully functional online Poultry Magazine.
