The Poultry Club of Great Britain is a registered charity founded in 1877.[1] Its stated purpose is to "safeguard the interests of all pure and traditional breeds of poultry including chickens, bantams, ducks, geese and turkeys".

The Poultry Club maintains the British Poultry Standard and acts as the overseeing body for all poultry breed clubs in Great Britain. The club is also responsible for organizing the annual British national poultry show.[2]
