In mid-June, the Kansas Department of Agriculture Division of Animal Health prohibited all comingling of birds in the state of Kansas. Thus, all swaps, shows, and auctions scheduled for 2015 were prohibited. This ban will continue until the Kansas Department of Agriculture Division of Animal Health makes a decision regarding these events at the end of the year. To read more about the restriction of events go to this link.
Go to gbwf.org Avicultural Forums and look in the Events section. All information about the auction will be posted there.
