New York swaps or auctions??? - Page 3

post #21 of 33

I go on mondays to the small animal & livestock auction in Athens PA, just over the NY/PA border from Waverly NY off Route 17. (Athens Stockyard)
They auction chickens, geese, turkeys, and other small furry farm animals starting around 11:30am on those days, then go into larger farm animals.
They allow you to look in the boxes/cages at the animals also so you get a look at what is taken in for that days auctions.
I've gotten some good birds there - usually 6-12 months old this time of year are going through. Lots of geese, Ducks and Bunny's the past few weeks.

At the Kings Auction the small animals usually get boxed in cardboard with sufficient air holes cut into it.  They pull them out into a cage for sale.  Anything in that box is bid for at once x the number in the box.  If you want to sell a cage with the animal it will add 1 to the multiplied #.

This sale would be the closest for you willheveland .. I have thought about checking this sale out in the past. I like to go to King's when i'm looking for Amherst or golden hens. Seems like they get a lot of exotic pheasant through there. Have fun if you all go!!

Does anyone know if King's has a website or what time you can drop off and what time the auction starts?

Yes,It is about 8 miles away(off rt220).I used to go there before the new owners took over.They never advertise the smaller stock.I thought they weren't running them through anymore.
It has been in business many years then the owners had some $$$ trouble and it had to be closed.Then months to a year later new owners reopened it.I think they live in my town.
Well I guess I'll have to check them out again. Thanks for the post.   Will

There are three kinds of people in this world-Those that do what ever they're told-Those who control them- and those who refuse to play that game,envied and hated by the other two.

Never know whats going to be there but usually worth the trip if your in the buying mood. Sometimes they have some good equipment also that you can get cheap. Like wire, feeders, cages etc. They also sell all types of feed there and during the sale you can buy tickets for $1.00 and enter drawings of a bag a feed of your choice Sometimes its for two bags but you have a few chances to win. They also sell food but I would stick to a bag  of chips and skip the dogs or burgers.
