Has anyone gone to this Swap?  Is anyone going this year?  I saw it advertised in the Poultry Press.

Hello,

I went last year and thought it was pretty good. I went in the fall, so I think that they might have more in the spring. I am planning on going this weekend if the weather is not too bad.

A neighbor of mine is a "regular" at the Waterloo Swap -- she has quite the menagerie:

fowl of all kinds -- chickens, turkeys, emus, peafowl
calves
horses
donkeys
sheep
goats (occassionally)
buffalo (2)
alpaca
llama

Most of her critters came from either friends or the Waterloo swap.  I'm hoping to get down there one Sunday and check it out for myself.

Do you have info for the time & location of the swap?  I'm in the area, and would like to go.

Went this morning. Weather was terrible, snowy and cold wind. not verry many sellers for the first one of the year but weather affected that. Next one will be last sunday of April. Hopefully weather will be better.

If you go, just make sure you get there EARLY --- I think they close up at 10:30am.

I'm sure the next swap will be better weather-wise.
