A group of pupils from Papakaio School visited Clint and Barbara O'Brien's home to see their multitude of hens, roosters, bantams, pigeons and ducks.
It was part of an art project to raise awareness of the Oamaru Poultry Pigeon and Canary Society's 125th jubilee show next month.
The society will also host the first New Zealand Poultry Pigeon and Cage Bird Association national show held in the South Island.
About 1500 poultry, bantam, pigeon and duck entries are expected from throughout New Zealand, along with aviary birds, so numbers could reach 2000.
The show is being held at the Drill Hall from July 17-19.
Mr O'Brien, who is president of the Oamaru Poultry Pigeon and Canary Society, said it was decided to hold an interschool art display.
Prominent North Otago artists have been helping pupils, while the Creative Communities Waitaki district scheme provided funding for materials.
