Twice a year the Heart of America Gamebird Assn. holds two major auctions in Gardner Ks. near Kansas City. Last fall it was not well attended, but this spring was fairly large with nearly 1000 cages of birds being sold. Reports on the sales of peafowl were that they sold fast and at higher prices than normal. Early bidding was bringing $150 and higher for 2014 yearling hens and late in the day 2014 BS hens were still bringing as much as $210. One cage of 2014 White yearlings went for $160 x five birds, ($800.). There were no bargains to be had at this auction. For those not familiar with the consignment requirements at this event, all cages are sold with the birds, NPIP testing is required, and all paperwork must be presented as well as any other state requirements crossing state lines.
