    What a fun date! Talked my husband into going to a chicken auction I'd read about online. He's still shaking his head and laughing (more of a cattleman). He'd do most anything for me though [​IMG]

    I didn't even know there was such a thing but evidently they hold one monthly. They had chickens, quail, turkeys, pheasants, and even a few bunnies. It was fun. I got a trio of silver duckwing bantams.

    It was crowded! I was in awe of the whole thing. We paid $33 dollars for 3 silver duckwings but they were a birthday present for my 84 year old mom so we really didn't care. They are so cute. The prices seemed high to me but I'm not current on chicken prices. [​IMG]

    Congrats on your new flock members! We have two local chicken swaps a month right now, though they may die off a bit as we move toward winter. It doesn't truly get cold here though until November though. An auction would be cool, though!
