    Our first swap of the year is scheduled for march 31st saturday, Tractor supply company, civic center dr in Augusta, maine. generally swaps for this location will be the last saturday of the month. 8:30-1:00pm. come early, come late but don't miss it! (hint**best selection, is early)
    bring your poultry and poultry related items, farm stuff, seedlings (ok, maybe not seedlings yet), crafts, you name it. goats, horse,cow,pigs and all those farm related items.
    come and buy, talk to the sellers and learn (or teach) in the process.
    for those selling, make sure to bring water for your animals and boxes to send them home in. (also remember to clean up after yourself when you leave, we want to be invited back)
    for those buying, bring boxes, they seem to be hard to come by some weekends and plenty of cash to spend.

    so post here what you are bringing and/or what you are looking for.

    Hoppy, do you still have any young males left ? Would I be able to get a few 8+ week old females? I have 2 EE's that I hatched (thanks SCG [​IMG]) that are about 8 or 9 weeks that need some company.

    at the moment(today) I have 2 lavender orps and 1 blue laced orp/wyandotte (that might be a pullet)- these are 6 weeks right now. also have blue laced red wyandottes that are 5 days and I have a new hatch due this saturday of orp, wyandottes and the 2 combined. I pretty much have something hatching every weekend from now until i turn off the bator.I have eggs coming so another 5 weeks more anyway. 6 week old females are mostly lavender orps, 8+ week old 1 barred orp.

    Argh I am working that weekend. Was planning on bringing some female OE chicks to sell and maybe a homemade brooder, but guess I'll be doing the next swap instead.

    So happy I will most likely be bringing some cages, possibly some rabbits, and maybe some silkies, not sure if I want to sell them or not. Some poultry waterers! I will mostly be buying at this swap! If I see something that I need to have!

    I guess I will list a bit of what I know I will be bringing even though it's early. few barred rock pullets, lavender orpingtons pullets and cockerals (all sexed), 1 blue partridge silkie hen split to lavender. all birds that I am listing will be 8+ weeks old.

    because uncle henry's won't let me run a 2nd ad for the poultry swap at this location and mention TSC as the location, would someone else be willing to place a free ad with them in the what's happening section? i'd like a 2nd one to go out by monday so it's in for the week closest to the swap.
    if I have someone that would do this just for this swap that would be great. just use your own phone number for the contact number as they have limited mine listing TSC to once/month.
