Maine Chicken Swaps/ Stocks And Shows 2014

    This page is where I will have the current swaps listed and I will try to keep that updated. This is MY list. You are welcome to use it to find a swap in your area but I am not under any obligation to list any swap.
    Each swap usually also has a separate thread for each swap that lists who is bringing what and who is looking for a special something at a particular swap. PM me with any updates, new swap listings, or links to swap pages and I may post them. Please be aware, this is NOT a complete list.
    All animals offered for sale/trade whether or not any money changes hands, should be healthy and in good condition. Sick or diseased animals have no place at the swap, and if you have sick animals at home, please stay home to avoid spreading any commutable disease. Many can be carried on your clothing or shoes. The owner/seller is responsible for all sales and to be sure they are following Maine state law. If you have questions, you can send me a private message or call the AG or Food dept for current rules concerning what items you are offering for sale.
    The state does send representatives to the swaps and they may or may identify themselves as a state employee. If you are not proud of what you are selling, you probably should not be bringing it to a swap. See bottom of post for the swap rules and be aware some swaps have different rules, so these are the general rules for the maine swaps as outlined by the state and general store policy.

    IT WILL BE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF EACH VENDOR TO ABIDE BY STATE OF MAINE LAWS AND REGULATIONS;






















    TO PROVIDE ANY REQUIRED LICENSING, ADEQUATE SHELTER, CAGING, WATER AND FOOD FOR THEIR ANIMALS; & TO CLEAN UP THEIR AREAS WHEN LEAVING.

    Maine State Laws governing the sale of poultry/waterfowl & goats
    Maine State Law:

    MAINE RULES AND REGS ON SALES OF LIVESTOCK, POULTRY, WATERFOWL, MILK, CHEESE

    http://www.maine.gov/agriculture/ahi/ahisr.html

    5A.All sheep & goats (no matter the age or whether castrated or not) must be tagged if they are up for sale at any event. All sheep/goat being sold from a farm need to have a tag, whether being sold in state or out of state.The farmer is required to keep records for 5 years. A small yellow book is usually provided with the tag shipment for recording of the tag number, date sold, etc. The Augusta Swap has elected to have scrapie tags available to those that want to bring goats/sheep from small flocks (1-2 animals). the owner is responsible for tagging their own animal.


    5B. Poultry (ducks, chicks, turkeys etc) have to be sold in lots of 6 from one seller if they are under 8 weeks old. After 8 weeks of age, they can go one at a time. Now, from your house or farm you can sell single birds of any age.


    NO PROCESSING OR NEUTERING OF ANIMALS
