    This may be a dumb question but does the canton flea markey usually have chickens for sale? Some of my family was goin to go this weekend but I don't want to go unless they've got a good number of chickens

    My neighbor said that she heard that there are a BUNCH of chickens there but that she hasn't been personally. We're about 3 hours from there and would need to stay in a hotel over night if we went so I want to make sure that if I go that they actually do have chickens.

    Canton is packed with all kinds of chickens, quail, ducks, peafowl, some swans sometimes.

    You have to go to Dog Alley, that is what the section is called.

    It is allot of fun.

    Thank you!! thank you!! thank you!!

    That is exactly what I wanted to hear [​IMG]

    We were supposed to go to a sale Friday but it got canceled because of it bein the first weekend of hunting season and the guy that ownes/runs it hunts. Bummer...
    So I was really hoping that there would be lots of chickens at canton and that there might even be a wider selection than at our local sale.

    Saturday is usually the best day. There are so many chickens, from RIR's to EE's.
    People usually have chicks all the way to POL hens.
    If you haven't been just make sure you go to the right section, Canton is HUGE and they can only sell animals in Dog Alley.

    AND they sell roasted corn on the cob [​IMG] and Turkey legs....yummy

    Do they have a map or something we can pick up when we get there? I was looking on their website at the map and I dont' see anything that says Dog Alley so I'm not real sure where it is

    EDIT: Oh wait! I see it! It's way way way way down in the bottom right corner. lol.
