The Oklahoma Avicultural Society sponsors two annual Bird Fairs, the "Spring Fling" Bird Fair and the "Indian Summer" Bird Fair. Both are this region's largest fairs and attract local and national vendors and bird breeders. With approximately one hundred vendor tables of bird related items, including a large variety of bird species, cages, play stands, toys, food, publications and other assorted bird paraphernalia, fair visitors are bound to find those just perfect items for their feathered companions.
In its continuing effort to promote responsible companion bird ownership and education, the OAS provides free printed materials covering numerous aspects of bird care. Topics include nutrition, choosing the proper toys and cages, behavior, and toxic hazards. This is where the public can learn about what to expect when a bird becomes a pet in their home.
The Oklahoma Avicultural Society promotes the buying and selling of only baby birds that have been properly weaned to experienced handfeeders of a species. Educational material will be available explaining the dangers and dispelling the myths of purchasing or selling unweaned babies. (We encourage all vendors who attend OAS Bird Fairs to consider first the health and well being of their babies and to sell only those that are properly weaned.)
Income generated by the Bird Fairs allows the Oklahoma Avicultural Society to provide quality speakers at our monthly meetings and to support avian research and conservation.
There was a tremendous turnout at the last OAS Bird Fair, with many new vendors from outside the region, and it proved to be a fun day out for everyone. These fairs are an excellent opportunity to talk with other bird lovers, discuss with them the joys and responsibilities of pet bird ownership, and to pick up the latest toys or stock up on those favorite birdie treats.
Plan to join in the fun and attend the next OAS Bird Fair!!!
