Poultry Requirements and Rules

Poultry Notice:

The Athens County Fairboard met in conjunction with the Sale Committee and OSU Extension on Monday, June 8th. During that meeting the fairboard approved guidelines for the 2015 Athens County Jr. Fair Poultry and Waterfowl Shows. If market exhibitors meet all guidelines, they will be able to participate in the annual Jr. Fair Livestock Sale displaying a poster instead live birds. NO LIVE BIRDS WILL COME TO THE FAIR. Those who have breed projects will be able to complete their projects as well by meeting requirements for the breed show. This decision is in response to the state-wide ban of poultry and waterfowl shows, exhibitions and auctions, which was implemented on Tuesday, June 2nd. Market chicken pickup will still be held on Wednesday, June 17th from 3pm until 5pm at the Secretary's office on the Athens County Fairgrounds. Biosecurity measures will be implemented during pickup. Any exhibitor who fails to pick up their chicks will not meet the requirements for completion of the project. NO LIVE BIRDS WILL COME TO THE FAIR!
