    I've heard of a sale in Gerard, KS that happens twice a year...spring & fall. Does anyone know anything about this? can't find any info on the net. It's supposed to be one of the largest exotics sale in the country. Thanks
     
  2. I have no idea but I'd love to know. I haven't even heard of Gerard, and I've lived in Kansas my whole life. :p

    Girard is the spelling. But the auction/sale is in Yates Center.

    My husband has not allowed me to go for fear of what I will bring home. His friend goes all the time. He said there is everything you can imagine and usually pretty good prices. Mostly a buyers market. I will be at the next one. I want to say it is in May...He promised that I can get peafowl this year. YAY!

    The 2013 information has been updated to the HOAGBA site - http://www.gbwf.org/hoagba/index.html As we get closer to March, I will post more sale information. I will also be adding some new articles to the HOAGBA site in the coming weeks.

    There has been a sale in Girard in the past, was mostly cage & aviary birds. Check with Mike on the gbwf forum, http://www.gbwf.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=8227 I knew that he had posted the dates in the past, but not sure if it's still going on.

    The Yates Center sale I believe can be found here: http://www.kramerlivestockfarm.com/alternative livestock sale.html
