Allow me to introduce you to "The Cluck and Quack Poultry Club", which started in April of 2001.
Purpose
The purpose of our club is to connect people with the same interests of raising poultry, waterfowl, pigeons and other exotic and domestic animals and birds in order to exchange information, provide contacts and promote accepted standards. We provide opportunities for members to increase their knowledge in the intricacies of raising the above critters, to purchase and sell them and to provide opportunities for members to display them for judging purposes.
Meetings
Our meetings take place in the months of February, April, June, October and December each year. Our meetings are held at a different club memberís home on a volunteer basis. The reason for this is to ensure that not only does one member have the cost of hosting meetings; but, more importantly we get to have a tour of the hostís bird facilities Ė which gives people many ideas on housing and to see different breeds first-hand. Our meetings are fun! If you are unable to attend meetings, the minutes are promptly mailed out to you so you stay informed on what is going on in the club.
Shows and sales
We have judged shows, displays at various cultural and agricultural events, and co-host poultry health and feeding seminars. In September we hold our Critter, Craft and Industry sale. Club members are invited to bring their feathered and furred critters, crafts and equipment for sale at the cost of $15.00 per vendor. We have an enormous turnout and members are extremely happy with their sales. Fairly new to us is our Spring Auction held one day of the first weekend of May.
Who are members?
The members of our club have experience ranging from just starting out with birds, all the way to 25+ years of enjoying the hobby. We also have a library of books pertaining to poultry and their care.
Members Critters
Our club members own everything from Bantams, Standard Chickens, Ducks, Turkeys, Guinea Fowl, Peacocks, Pheasants, Pot-bellied Pigs, Rabbits, Goats, Sheep, Llamas, Alpacas, Pigeons, Quail and probably more that we canít remember.
Membership Directory
Every member of the club receives a copy of a Membership Directory which lists everything each member owns. This helps if you are looking for a particular breed and want to buy from a club member. The Directory is also a good place to drop a line about your at-home business, if you have one.
