HEALTH REQUIREMENTS
Pennsylvania Bureau of Animal Industry regulations require that fair or show secretaries submit an AAI–34 (Entry Report Form for Fair and Show Secretaries) listing all expected poultry entrants no less than 10 days before the show.
Regulations also require that the. Bureau of Animal Industry must be notified of planned bird shows (Pigeon, canary, parakeet, etc.) at least 30 days prior to the show date. The fair secretary should submit an AAI–48 (Bird Show Notification Form) giving the date and location of the show.

Bird Testing is required.  Due to budget cuts the Dept of Ag is charging for the bird tests this year.
* Flock owners must endorse official certification that all poultry and birds for exhibit originate from flocks free of evidence of contagious diseases.
** Pennsylvania chickens must be from home flocks vaccinated for laryngotracheitis (LT) no more than one year, and no less than 30 days, before opening date. LT Vent Brush vaccine must never be used.
Date of vaccination
Vaccine Brand Name
Lot No.
Save vaccine box at home for your permanent record of brand and lot number.
Use vaccine for intranasal (in) or intracular (io) administration only.
Since all birds returned from the show are potential sources of infection to other birds, they should be isolated immediately after their return, separate and apart from all other birds. This isolation should be maintained indefinitely, if possible, or at least until it has been established that the birds are not carriers of disease-reproducing agents as may be determined by exposure of a few susceptible birds to direct contact with them.
Entry Requirements
    1. One entry in each class per individual.
    2. Any Breed recognized by Poultry Association will be accepted.
