You'd be excused for thinking a documentary about competitive chicken breeding in New Zealand could be either a little dry or a touch wacky. This however – is a real treat!

Join members of the Christchurch Poultry, Bantam and Pigeon Club in the lead up to the NZ National Championships, as they battle history and each other in a quest for glory and for the love of their birds.

At first ‘Pecking Order’ treads a fine line between documentary and mockumentary, but as the story settles, the characters are revealed with respect and dignity, and you find yourself wishing them well and seeing chicken shows as perfectly everyday.

‘Pecking Order’ is hilarious, unique, heart-warming and will delight and surprise audiences of all ages.
