    I wanted to add that just because it has the word, "swap" doesn't mean we have to trade anything! It can be anything poultry related for sale OR trade! Don't want to buy or swap but have chickens for sale? Bring them!

    Examples: chickens, ducks, geese, guineas, incubators, hatching eggs, brooders, feeders, etc. I'm planning to also bring some chicken artwork and rooster-themed necklaces...so bring whatever!

    And let's spread the word! I'm going to be a few fliers up locally and I'll be putting some ads on Craigslist tonight, too!

    2010 North/Central Washington Poultry Swap/Sale!

    October 2nd, in Ellensburg far north parking lot of the fairgrounds off of University way, across from Starbucks.

    Here's my updated list:

    3 adult (1 year old) white Sebastopol geese (curly-breasted), two ganders & one goose $75 each or all three for $180.00

    Spangled Russian Orloff rooster = $25 VERY nice boy

    Houdan bantam rooster= VERY unique coloring $25

    Houdan bantam hen = hatched with crossed beak so I don't want to use her for breeding, but very sweet! $10

    Crevecoeur rooster hatched in May = $10

    Black Sumatra hen = $10 (missing 1/2 of a foot from frostbite but very friendly & lays well)

    Mille Fleur Cochin bantam rooster 1 year old = $25

    Light Sussex rooster, 1 year old directly from Greenfire farms, VERY sweet & tame = $65 FIRM

    Unsexed chocolate pied muscovy ducklings = $10 each

    Unsexed white muscovy duckling =$15


    As far as wants:
    I'm looking for are more sebastopol geese in white with curly breasts...I'm looking for another pair OR either sex...

    Chocolate pied muscovy FEMALE or two! I need some new lines into my flock...

    Non-bird trades--chicken tractors, a rabbit hutch, wire cages, etc. I will trade birds for equal or lesser value (within reason) non-bird items!

    Oh and I want an electric treadmill! [​IMG]

    I'm thrilled at the idea of doing so.

    chickens:
    Silver Gray Dorking pullet (hatched early Feb)
    4 Blue chicks (hatched last week of September) Cochin/Rhodie mix (avatar pic)

    ducks:
    9 Ducklings (hatched mid-August) - Khaki Campbells & KC/Runner mixes (straight run)
    KC/Runner mix hen - great brooder (hatched Fall 2009)
    2 Silver/Blue Swede drakes - hatched in May
    2 Khaki Campbell hens - great brooders

    What I'm hoping for - eggs, chicks or pullets/hens
    Cochins (standard & bantam) Smooth or Frizzle

    I definently may be. I have roosters coming out of my ears!! Early Spring or Late Winter might be more fun when we can swap babies & eggs!

    I don't think I'd have anything to bring for sale, but I'm sure that I would be able to make room for more chickens that I could buy lol

    The problem is Heather, he's a roo! Me can't have no more roos!!!! [​IMG]

    I think a fall AND spring swap are great ideas!

    I have an assortment of roos for sale right now, but come Spring should have BLRW (my DD won champion pullet, champion cockerel and reserve best in show with her pullet this week at the Evergreen Fair 4-H show!), Lav Orps, Blue and Black English Orps, BBS Bantam Cochins, Crele OEGB bantams and possibly LF Lav Ameraucanas & Lav bantam cochins.

    I think Monroe is a great meeting place! I may be able to park an RV for an overnighter if needed! [​IMG]

    My vote is a Fall & Spring swap - I'm hoping hubby will get off his tushie and build me an incubator soonest so I can start hatching here!

    I don't have anything to trade or need any more chickens (at least until spring), but might be interested in attending. However it is unlikely that my work schedule will allow it.
