    Hello! Was just wondering if anyone was going to the Kalona sale tomorrow at 10 for the bird/animal swap that they have every wednesday? If you are, what are you planning on selling? Or buying? [​IMG]

    I'll go if you go! Bring me some blue wyandottes or standard cochins! [​IMG]

    I did not go this week. The birds vary a lot depending on who brings what each week. There were nice birds and really beat up birds both weeks. I plan to go again sometime in Dec. as I need to sale my ram and I have Wed. off each week. A few weeks ago I got some nice BO laying hens that had just started laying and 6 Scovie ducklings. A week before that I sold 2 ducks, 3 extra roosters, 4 button quail chicks, 2 adult button quail, 4 guinea fowl, and 3 Coturnix quail and the turnout that week was really great. Both weeks I went it was more of a seller's market than a buyer's market. If you were selling you were really happy with the prices but if you were buying you thought it was a bit pricey. I was happy overall both weeks I went.

    Do you know if they are having a sale next week with it being so close to a holiday? The day I they were selling by cages full on the chickens and per piece on everything else. I thought some of the birds were in need of a little extra love but I bought a standard black cochin rooster there that I just adore! I can walk right up to him and pick him up and pet him with no problems.

    Quote:That would be Rufus [​IMG] Glad he went to a good home. I am not sure if they have a sale next week or not. I did not have any standard cochin hens so I sold both the roosters. The next week they sold chickens by the head also instead of by cage. I wish they did that the week before also cause one of my cages of baby cochin bantams chicks sold for only $3. I should have said NO SALE as I really miss those babies now.
