    Quote:I stopped in near the end, because I had to work today. Giving Sammy's friend the whole farmland experience..... LOL! It was all over by 2:15. I heard eggs went pretty well, but not what I could sell them for here. Call ducks did too. I'm keeping my eyes open for some fancy pigeons for Noah. We like the frillbacks. They had a lot of pigeons early in the day. Mostly rabbits & roosters at the end of the auction.

    I have 1 Ameraucana chick out! [​IMG]

    ETA: Dawn just called me -- the next auction is next weekend, so they don't run into Easter weekend. I'm going to go to work early so I can make the next one.

    No need to apologize. And you DID clarify. I was the silly one for thinking local instead of global. Sometimes my brain just can't expand to hold the whole world in it. I think it would explode if I tried most days.

    NY is a BIG state and there is just about everything in it. Cario, Egypt, Amsterdam, Austerlitz, Holland, umm...Russia, TWO Cherry Valleys (not that they are international names, just a fun fact), Malta, Greece, Prussia, Climax (he he)...that's all I can think of off the top of my head....of course Albany, Troy and Rensselaer (for the very common Dutch "Van Rensselaer")

    Well if I were going to be here I'd buy some to hatch some just to give the chicks away. Last time it was BR's and I just sold em for a buck.

    How many cities are named after other cities? Loads I'm sure. I live in Voorheesville. That may be an odd one. Or Schenectady... [​IMG]

    Stopped into TSC in North Utica today. All they had left was Silkies. I was surprised to see Silkies, that's for sure. One of the chicks laid an eye on my son and he started asking to take home some chicks because aren't they cute? We need some more test chicks, right?

    I explained to him about silkie mind control and resisted enough to leave the store. Whew! What a close call that was. If I knew they would have Silkies, I would have stayed away from the bins. They were so cute, poofs on their heads and all......NO, I must stop it! No set up for silkies - they need heat in the winter!

    Well, have a nice day guys.

    Happy Country Hens.

    Okay my husband just called me a chicken addict! He thinks it's funny that we can have chickens and then spend part of the day online talking about them.
