    Hi. i have been selling and re-stocking my chickens and am wanting to buy some more.
    would like aracauna (or ameracauna) for sure. already have a few rhode islands, new hampshires, golded comet, so pretty much anything other than what i got. i really am not interested in any show type birds. we have them for layers and meat. i am interested in any type of meat chickens too. thanks.

    According to Google we are 196 miles apart.

    I reckon you will be able to find chickens a little closer than that [​IMG]

    Hi Flock,

    Wow, we are only 63 miles apart (according to mapquest). I live in SE Missouri.

    I don't have anything to sell (unless it's some mixed eggs) but I wanted to say "welcome" since we aren't too far apart.

    Flock, tell me a little about the swap in Fruitland. What kind of chicks/ chickens do they usually have? Decent quality? Big selection or just a few? How hard is the location to find?

    Thanks,
    Shane

    its pretty good. the closest one i can find to me. it have bought quite a few birds. most of the time there is a good selection and number of birds. i have bought some there. last sale i took around twenty to sell. sold every one of them. there are a couple that breed ameracaunas(aracaunas) and always have chicks and pullets and then you have alot of small chickens like different types of bannies. i always have a good time and look forward to it all month. it is located at the jackson/fruitland exit and is off the exit about two miles so not too hard to find.
