Exhibitors should not knowingly exhibit any bird which has recently been vaccinated with a live vaccine, or which has recently been exposed to or exhibits symptoms of a contagious disease.

3. All birds, except waterfowl, must be from Pullorum/AI clean flocks. Proof of Pullorum/AI testing is required for all birds entered in the show or offered for sale or trade. Waterfowl from NH need not be tested unless being sold. Waterfowl/pigeons from out of NH will need to have a CVI and proof of testing if over 20 weeks old. Under 20 weeks a form 9-3 is required. 

4. Junior exhibitors (under the age of 18) may enter in the Open or Junior Division, the appropriate entry fee will apply.

 Show Room Courtesy:

Please help us when it comes time to leave by removing all water cups and coop tags from your cages, and close the doors. At any show you attend, this little bit of help saves the show personnel time and lets them leave sooner. This is one way you can say thanks to the show personnel who organized the show for you to attend. Better yet, why not pitch in and fold down a few cages? If every exhibitor took down and folded even one or two cages, it would cut clean up time immensely. Remember, there are fewer and fewer people willing to help with the show every year. Rewards are few, and work is much. Why not do your part to help the fancy?


This year Super Grand will be going home with $150 and Reserve with $100
