    I have attended the sales at McDonald's corners, Vernon, and South Mountain the past.  sales start at 9 am and run until all are sold-  typically mid afternoon

    Anyone can come and buy birds (all are in cardboard boxes with chicken wire fronts) or in cages.  To sell at Vernon you have to join the club.

    You will find chickens, bantams, ducks, geese, turkeys, pigeons, guinea fowl, quail, pheasants, partridges, peafowl and some cage birds; finches, canaries, budgies, etc.  also some equipment such as incubators, maybe a few cages, etc.
    Also some hatching eggs.

    The South Mountain sale and McDonald's Corners will include rabbits.
    The Kemptville and McDonald's corners sale has a vendor selling books, incubators, and equipment who may be at other sales.

    To buy migratory birds; mallard ducks, canada geese, you must have a federal permit before buying.  To buy huntable birds i.e. ringneck pheasants, hungarian partridge, and bobwhite quail you are supposed to get a provincial permit after ten days of purchase to keep birds in province of Ontario.  Quebec does not have a permit for game birds.

    I don't get the feathier fancier so I don't know what is listed there.  www.featherfancier.on.ca

    Just wondering if you happen to have any information regarding the Chesterville Poultry Swap this weekend September 15th. I do have the address and start time but am unable to confirm whether I need to pre-register? Also, I heard that there is a Poultry sale in Renfrew on Sunday...
    Any information you might be able to provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!
