    Okay, so I am not sure if this is the right section, but I was just wondering what the advantages of being in a poultry fanciers club is?
    We have our local one, and I was considering joining.

    I have no idea---but the advantage of ANY club is it gives you the ability to network with people who share interests. It also may connect you with people who have connections you may otherwise not have access to.


    Networking is da bomb.

    Local clubs to me are the place to socialize with people who share your interests.

    Also, by banding together it is often a lot easier to get local regulations changed.

    All good points. Also, some clubs have breeder lists that they only make available to club members.

    Or buy in bulk, and divide up and save. Like meds, or food, or books.
