New Hampshire Poultry Fanciers Association 


























































Welcome to the home page of the New Hampshire Poultry Fanciers Association. The primary purpose of this page is to act as the online show book for the annual NHPFA show. Using this website and printing the entry form saves the club on printing and postage costs, and is one small thing which you can do to support your hobby.

NHPFA each year organizes New Hampshire's only two officially sanctioned American Poultry Association and American Bantam Association shows. Our annual show is always held on the second Sunday of October. The poultry section of the Deerfield Fair is also set up and staffed mainly by NHPFA members, and it is sanctioned by the APA and ABA. NHPFA donates the sanction fees each year to the Fair, for the benefit of the New Hampshire poultry exhibitors. The poultry section of the Deerfield Fair is the finest of all the fairs in the state. None other comes close, partially due to the dedication and hard work of the NHPFA membership. For more information on entering the Deerfield Fair, see their website at http://www.deerfieldfair.com/

Membership

At this time, NHPFA has an informal membership policy. Interested parties are considered to be members if they show up and help with club functions. Dues are paid by the labor that each individual puts into the club, or occasionally by assisting in other areas. The main two events at which members participate are the clean up after the Deerfield Fair, which is always held on the Monday after the fair closes, in preparation for our Annual show, and the clean up on the day of the Annual Show itself. A yearly organizational meeting is held each August. Anyone who is interested is welcome to attend.

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?
