    Just thought I'd post here and tell about my wonderful time at the auction in Graceville. I heard about the place from another BYC member. I had never been to a animal auction before and being the animals lover I am LOVED it! [​IMG] There were calfs, goats, chickens, parekeets. I was determined to bid on something & I did! [​IMG] I bid and won day old chicks! [​IMG] They are very cute! We are clueless on what they are, but we love them! [​IMG] We will be posting pics soon and maybe ya'll can help us figure out what they are. Like I had said I have never been to a auction before so I was just excited to bid and at 1st I didn't realize I was bidding on all 30 chicks--haha! I surely didn't need that many! I was outbid and the other person only wanted 1 chick so I was given the option to get as many as I wanted and I said I wanted 5. My husband picked them out and he had to carry them away in his hands (imagine if I would have got all 30-haha, he would have had them all in his shirt!) We have 16 other chickens and have done the whole brooder thing before. I am excited to get to know my new chickies!!! [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Glad you have a good time. I love auctions. Not all of them are nice but it sounds like the one you went to was fun. I wish I was in Florida now, I'm freezing. I hate PA. Have fun with the chicks and I can't wait to see the chick pics.

    Quote:Graceville is up above Panama City up near the Alabama line. Fountain is near Panama City itself. Both are in the upper panhandle area.
