SOCIETY OF CANARY & FINCH BREEDERS OF MICHIGAN
The Society of Canary & Finch Breeders of Michigan Annual All Bird Show is the highlight of our year. It allows members and exhibitors alike a place to show off all the hard work they've put in with their birds during the year. This is one of the largest shows in the Midwest. Many refer to it as a "Mini-National" and use it as a means to test their birds before the National Bird Show later in the season. Folks come from all over the Country to show their birds, meet with old friends, and compete in a friendly venue.
Sale tables are available to Club Members & Exhibitors only
