Who we are...
In January 2012 the Panhandle Poultry Club held its first official meeting in Pensacola, Florida.
The purpose of the Panhandle Poultry Club is to encourage and promote interest in purebred poultry through selective breeding, exhibition and through the sharing of knowledge; to promote and breed towards the standards of the American Poultry Association and the American Bantam Association.
We are a family oriented club and promote good sportsmanship for both young and old. We encourage and educate the Junior Poultry person, as well as the Adult, on the value of purebred poultry; that they will be able to decide what types of fowl he/she wishes to raise, how to select quality birds, how to house, feed, and provide general care and practice healthy bio-security for all poultry.
With these goals, the Panhandle Poultry Club members will learn about showing poultry in Junior and Open divisions and the steps necessary to become an exhibitor.
What we do...
The Panhandle Poultry Club also would like to extend their knowledge and expertise towards anyone with an interest in poultry. This could be from anyone who is interested in a backyard flock for their family, to selling eggs and meat, to poultry as pets, as well as showing and breeding to the standard of perfection.
Throughout the year, the Panhandle Poultry Club will hold informational clinics and get-togethers. These question and answer meetings are wonderful to the poultry enthusiast because they offer a source of knowledge as well as a place to socialize and get to know your neighbor!
Every second Saturday in December, the Panhandle Poultry Club puts together a Double Open Poultry Show, Junior Show, and Farm Swap at the Pensacola Interstate Fairgrounds which includes poultry from around the country! This event has cash prizes, raffles, 50/50 lotto, and more! It is fun for the whole family and free to the public to come see!
