The location is at the Green Dragon Small Animal Auction on the grounds of the Green Dragon Farmer's Market in scenic Lancaster County, PA (the market has a website http://www.greendragonmarket.com/ ). The market itself is only open on Fridays, but this particular sale will be Saturday and food will be available.

    Consignments are welcome and receiving of animals for sale will start at 6:00am on Saturday morning.

    *Please keep in mind that the state of PA requires that out-of-state poultry for sale must have been tested negative for Avian Influenza. So please have this documentation available if applicable.*

    Wow... I would, but I am not selling my cages with my birds. I don't have that many cages. Kind of a silly rule, in my honest opinion.

    You can simply put them in cardboard boxes with wire on the sides and/or boxes with plenty of air holes..... thats what alot of people do.

    If you box them individually, thereby selling them individually...would that help?

    Not really, I'd like to get rid of a trio...would duct tape holding the boxes together help?

    I don't know how auctions work...I would think you might get more money by selling them individually..but hmm...yes, duct tape might hold the boxes together more securely. Or post on Freecycle that you are looking for a dog crate... maybe you can pick one up for free to carry/sell the chickens in.
