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

The Poultry Club of Great Britain donated David Scrivener's collection of material related to poultry keeping, health and breeding to The Museum of English Rural Life.[3] David Scrivener (1952 - 2015) was a well-respected author and poultry show judge. His collection includes postcards, prints, journals, pamphlets, slides and books.[4]
