If anyone is planning on going on Saturday let me know and maybe we could meet. I have really enjoyed meeting other crazy bird people . When ever friends or family start making fun of me about my birds I just tell them there are many more people out there just like me and we have websites, chat rooms and are connected. It is always funny to see the look of fear on their faces as they start looking around them like one of us is going to jump them and stuff a chicken in their pockets.
Until then hope everyone has a great month.
There is a $5 admission fee to get in each day.
On Friday, the auction is for bison, zebras, exotic deer and sheep, goats, etc. Behind the auction barn are poultry of all kinds in cages, rabbits, dogs and in the yard outside is equipment and lots of misc. stuff. Inside, for sale are hamsters, exotic foxes, reptiles, small birds and "warm room" animals and poultry. On Friday, the poultry, rabbits, equipment, small animals, warm room animals, etc. are priced and there might be some negotiation on the price, if you can find the owner.
On Saturday, the auction begins at 10:00 am with the poultry, rabbits, small animals, warm room animals, lbottle babies, then the equipment and then the llamas and any miniature donkeys.
My experience has been that most of the poultry arrives Friday morning and quite a bit is sold in the back alley on Friday. Some new poultry arrives on Saturday for the auction and anything not sold at the marked/negotiated price on Friday is put through the auction on Saturday.
I am planning on going on Saturday..... Not to buy anything of course, but they do have great food in the concession stand.
