The typical meeting consists of a brief business session, a door prize, pot luck meal, club raffle, and that afternoon's program.

 The monthly programs vary from current husbandry methods to the latest avian medical information. During the monthly meetings information is exchanged on a wide variety of avian topics. The knowledge gained during these fellowship times is invaluable to the fancy. The most current methods, trends, reports, breedings, and products are frequently passed along by word of mouth long before that information is actually published.
