Wilson Arena/Exotics Sale, Cookeville, TN

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

Just found out that Wilson's is having their Exotic Sale November 8th, 9th and 10th. Birds are on the 8th starting at 10 a.m.. Tried to talk Skip into taking the day off but he said no way, so I guess I'm going by myself. Anyone else plan on going?

I've never been to an Exotic sale before but the list stated chickens, ducks, pheasants, emus...just a few that I remember reading from the list. Friday and Saturday will be other "exotic" animals like Alpacas, Donkey/Zebra crosses and other "oddities"...wish I would have copied the flyer. I plan on taking the camera as I have this sinking feeling that I'm gonna be like a "kid in a candy store". lau


FluffyChickenMama,

Cookeville is west on I-40 from Knoxville, heading towards Nashville. You can get directions with this link.

Is this sale still running? I keep hearing about a sale in Cookeville that sells chickens and I was wondering if this might be the same one...

So many breeds, so little time....so little space.

Actually they have the exotic / alternative livestock auction 4 times a year. I go to every one of them and have been going for years.  The next exotic sale is Feb.27th, 28th, Mar. 1st. 2nd. The first day is just antiques, taxidermy, skulls, hides,horns, things like this, no animals.  Thursday is when the animals start. The auction usually starts at 9am and will continue until all is sold, sometimes it runs until midnight or more. Thursday they will sell exotic cattle-Zebu, Minis, Watusi, etc. Followed by Alpacas, lamas, Yak, Water Buffalo, Bison, elk. deer, antelope, hogs, swine sheep and goats. Friday is the day for poultry- the day starts at 9am with an outside sale, all types of cages, feeders, you just never know what they will have (I love this auction!) around 10am the inside sale starts with Peacocks and pheasants, Swans, Fancy waterfowl. Followed by the exotic birds, macaws, pocket pets, monkeys, wallaby, kangaroo, fur bearers, reptiles etc. Around 2pm starts the poultry-ducks, geese, guineas, chickens, quail, pigeons, turkeys, then ostrich rhea, emus. There is usually thousand of birds.  Saturday-Mini horses, zebras, donkeys, mini donkeys, camels, zedonks, zorses.  

 

If you like animals and auctions you will love this sale-I never miss it. Usually the Feb/march sale and the May sell are sellers market- usually everything brings high prices. The Sept. and Nov. sale are the buyers market, people selling off for winter.
