It has come to our attention that there have been some rumors that the National Bird Show has been cancelled due to the Avian Flu. To date, this rumor is false. The 67th Annual show at Pheasant Run is still planning to take place.
AFA recently had their annual convention in Chicago. They hosted an Exhibition Show. They got a letter of clarification from the State of Illinois that the Ban in Illinois pertained to "Poultry" shows. Although some States have banned all bird shows, swaps, etc. Illinois has not.
If, in the unfortunate event, we ever have to cancel a show (like we did in Dallas and Jacksonville) we will post on Facebook, the website, and receive a personal letter in the mail.
Please spread this information.
