Our club was established in 1869 as was the American Poultry Association here in Western New York. We have around 50 members that live all around Western New York. Our annual spring show is held at the Erie County Fairgrounds in Hamburg, NY.
Meetings are held on the last Tuesday of March and April. Two additional meetings are held during the summer at different members homes where we hold demonstrations, lawnshows, potluck dinners and tours. Summer meetings are generally held on a day of a weekend. New people interested in getting into the hobby are welcome to attend any meeting, you can find times, dates and places on our club business page.

When you show your birds here they are kept in a clean environment, well cared for and seen by aton of people. It's a great way to get people interested in what you raise or sell.
