    Anyone else go to the Culpeper Auction?

    I really shouldn't have gone.. Between me, my fiance, my mom, and younger sister we did way too much damage.. :lol

    We came home with 5 pullets/hens (4 of those were $1!), 3 ducks (2 pekins & 1 call), 6 chicks (2 golden laced wyandottes, 1 golden comet, & 3 sex links), 2 rabbits & a hamster. [​IMG] All in all we only spent $70.. Which I guess wasn't too bad?

    I feel your pain - we went to the feed store (see post) and came home with 4 more chickens.

    4 more chickens is a lot better than the load we brought home. [​IMG]

    I'm glad I am not aware of anything like that going on here in the Southwest.... I'd be there.

    You should have come here instead. You could have gotten silver appleyard ducks, a Thanksgiving turkey, a Christmas goose and some blue orp chicks. [​IMG]

    we're going to the one they're having here, the weekend after next too [​IMG] teehee [​IMG]

    I wish we could go to the one next weekend, but it's too far aways I guess [​IMG]

  10. Weather is so bad from Nov 1 to April 1 that there can be no further construction for new coops or runs. Absolutely no new arrivals allowed because we are at capacity. Very sad.
