FYI, Tbird84... this auction goes on every Sunday at 2:00!  I happened to drive by it in full swing a couple of weeks ago and I had no idea it even existed, that place used to be a farmer's market. 
Here is the Craigslist ad for it http://raleigh.craigslist.org/grd/2210463234.html

It
says they're in Clayton but they're really in Wilson's Mills, which is between Clayton and Smithfield.  Here is their facebook page too http://www.facebook.com/pages/Wicked-Chicken-Auction/126024464131010#!/pages/Wicked-Chicken-Auction/126024464131010?sk=wall

, did you go?  What did you think?  When I drove by the parking lot looked pretty full.  And judging from the pics on their facebook page it looks like it's pretty popular.  I've never been to an auction before, I'm going to have to check it out.

Just use caution. That's all I've got to say.

My hen house is full so I won't be purchasing anything if I ever do go to one.

Eh, I looked it up. Clayton is just too far away. There is nothing around here! Pet chickens of Virginia is finally going to have regular swaps at the TSC in Franklin, Va. But...still. It's like a dead zone out here. Oh well. The only poultry auction I've been to is in Stokes, NC. That is still a good ways away. Nothing closer than a 2hr drive.

There is also one just outside of Wilson (Godwin's Auction) every Saturday at 10:00 and one at Stokes just outside of Greenville the 2nd and 4th Saturday at 9 or 10 (forgot time).  I am going to Wicked Chicken  for the 1st time this Sunday.  I have been to Godwin's and know some that sale there (HONEST PEOPLE).  I got all my Leghorns from a man that sells at both.  I hear that the Wicked Chicken is better, but also more crowded and prices higher there.

Just a warning about this auction.  It's supposedly legitimate.  I bought 7 pullets there.  They were listed as guarenteed pullets.  There were 6 cockerels in there.  Didn't find this out until weeks afterwards.  So frustrating!

We attended the Wicked Chicken Auction a few weeks ago. We had a good time, this was a first for us! We bought several nice chickens, and saw lots of others! And, ducks, turkeys, a goat, a bull calf, and bunnies too! Great homemade human treats at the general store too!! We will be going back!thumbsup

 I have a great husband, a mini farm that we call Barred Rock Farm! 1 Golden Retriever, 10 assorted cats, 3 goats, Jersey Giants, Cochins, Columbian Wyandottes , RIRs, Sex Links, Buff Orphingtons, Barred Rocks , EE, all of which is subject to change at any time!!  Except the great husband part!!!
