I have only been to it once. That was the fourth of July weekend. There was probably more sellers there then buyers for a large portion of the day. It also rained early on. Later in the swap the buyers came out. I did pretty well.
They say that there is usually around 200 people there.
We'll just have to see what happens this next time.
Will there be a September swap meet? Next Saturday?
I'd like to buy 4-5 laying hens. I'm always wary of buying laying hens at a swap meet, but would from someone who had a decent reputation on Backyard Chicken. If no layers available, I'd settle for older pullets 3 mo old+. No breed preference as long as it's a laying or dual purpose breed. Ideally I'd like a mix of breeds. Anybody bringing birds that fit the bill?
