    Hiya.
    Are there website links for any of the MN swaps or shows? I'm trying to find calendars for the winter/spring and having no luck with Google.

    I figure if I'm gonna keep trying to hatch these quail eggs, I'd probably better find somewhere to bring the extras. [​IMG]

    Thanks!

    Hi, I'm from Milaca. Close to me I only know of two places. Mora has a farmer's market on Weds. every week and Bock (East from Milaca) has started a farmer's market on saturdays during the summer. The one at Mora nearly always has chickens for sale especially during the summer months. I don't know if this is what your looking for but thought I'd give the info. Good Luck, Stan

    There is a 4-h poultry show in Hutchinson on February 7th. It's at the Mcleod county fairgrounds. I believe they have a sale area. I e-mailed the fairground manager and he is going to get back to me with more info.
    There is also a sport show on the 13th and 14th. They have geese, pheasants quail and the like for sale at that one. I'm not sure if they sell on both days or just one. That would probably be a better one for selling any extra quail you get. You can check out the web site:

    That question could be a topic for discussion at your Meetup on January 17.
