    We have an auction held the next town over every Friday night. I was wondering if anyone has sold thier chicks or roosters at one. We went to check it out and everything seems to be pretty good. Even got to talk to the NPIP lady that is there every Friday. I have 10 chicks that I need to find homes for. Im thinking taking them to the auction, but Im scared lol. Guess Im mostly looking for support here. I know they need to go. Most look to be roos and I just dont have the room.

    Whatcha think?

    I haven't but I would be worried about
    1. People buying cute little fuzzy things on impulse, with no idea of how to care for them.
    2. Lack of heat
    3. Drafts

    We sell some at auction every once in awhile.

    We have gotten a lot of customers that come to the house from the auctions.

    It started when I took some fertile eggs. After the bidder hatched them, they came looking for us to get more, since they had a good hatch.

    Just make sure you have what your state requires in order to sell at an auction before you take anything.

    I talked to the NPIP person who is there each auction night, and apparently all I have to do is show up with my feathered friends. I need to get rid of these roos. I hate having to do it, but mother nature doesnt work the way I think it should =/
