"Pecking Order is a light-hearted documentary set in the world of bird breeding. The self-described ‘feelgood flockumentary’ canvases the personalities, power plays, fowl play and ‘best in show’ fervour of the 148-year-old Christchurch Poultry, Bantam and Pigeon Club, as members prepare for the national championships." - FestivalReviews.org
"Pecking Order, in a droll, understated way, perfectly captures small-town Kiwi life and puts it up on screen for us all to appreciate...Pecking Order is a local hoot. Go see." - Graeme Tuckett, Stuff.co.nz
