    Also, its not in Illinois, but just over the boarder in Wisconsin in Monroe every third Saturday starting at 7 a.m. in the parking lot of the Equity Sale Barn on Highway 69. It is so close to Illinois, I might as well add it.

    Enterprise, Illinois: north of Fairfield, east of Cisne, just north of Hy 161. Usually advertise in Wayne County Press-Small animal auction. Ran by Amish, beware of purchasing "OLD" chickens, they pretty well know what they are getting rid of ! good luck and have fun !! Marcus Alan

    Kankakee bird & animal swap is the first Sunday in April,May, June, September & October. at the Kankakee County Fairgrounds right off I57 exit 308.Gates usually open for sellers to set up around 4am and for buyers usually by 5am. It is a huge swap. Indoor warm room animals and lots to see outside. Smith poultry has a booth inside too. Early bird gets the worm here. Stuff sells fast.
    See you there,

    Mothergoose, will you be selling any hatching eggs at the KKK swap on 4/3/16?
    If yes, what breed?
