Pecking Order (PG)


Fierce rivalries, club infighting, problematic birds and irregular judging are just some of the challenges faced by a group of zealous Kiwi chicken breeders hell bent on victory at the 2015 National Poultry Show.

This quirkily entertaining documentary takes a peek behind the scenes of competitive poultry breeding in New Zealand.
