    Would you be willing to meet me part way? Do you have pictures of grown rooster or hens with these breeds. I'm new to this and not sure what they look like.

    Quote:There's a livestock auction in Mtn. City, TN (which mapquest says is about 1 1/2 hrs from you) tomorrow. If you can get there around 10 or so so you can see the chickens as they come in, that's your best bet to see what they'll have. The auction starts at 11. The roosters usually go for less than $5 and hens that were laying went for $12.

    Quote:They have it every other Saturday. Here's a link that has the dates: http://www.auctionzip.com/TN-Auctioneers/32109.html

    It's
    on the left hand side of the road coming from Abingdon beside the quarry [​IMG]. Sort of in a curve. I missed it the first time [​IMG] .

    You are welcome [​IMG]. There's another one in Morristown somewhere but I don't know all that much about it. I can give you a number to someone who would know though.

    There were a lot of buff orps there the first time I went. This last time there were a lot of barred rocks, several gamey looking birds, and lots of pheasant babies.
