    This trade day is usually a pretty good one if the weather is good !

    It's the first Saturday of every month. They also have one the third Saturday. But the first Saturday is usually best

    YOU GOT TO GET THERE EARLY.....everyone comes at daylight and usually starts thinning out by 9am

    Of course it's always better in the summer months, but has been a pretty good crowd there every month so far

    Thanks for posting and letting everyone know about this bsaffles
    we need to support these trade days around our area

    It's usually i think $3.00 to set up and sell your birds or goats. And that goes to the land owner for letting us use the place

    I've heard of this but haven't made it yet.
    Won't make it this weekend, though [​IMG]
    DH is very set on not doing anything chicken-related this weekend except for scraping out the pen.

    Don't forget, tomorrow is the Poultry Trade Day between Sweetwater and Madisonville. Like Tngamebirds said, you have to get there early around daylight, and it is usually thinning out around 9 am. The weather is suposed to be a little chilly, but sunny. So if you can make it, hope to see you there.

    I will probably be there. I usually go and sell my extra quail, It is a great swap meet I think. I bought a nice trio of Frizzles there last month. Last month unfortunally deer huting season had just started so there was not a large turn out as there usually is. I took alot of quail back home. I got there so early I was the first person there! Sitting all by myself in the dark. Oh well, hopefully there will be alot of people tomorrow.

    I hear you, deer season, and the colder weather has slowed everything down. But maybe we will have a good turn out tomorrow. I'll be there.

    I was a little suprised to see such a good turn out yesterday, with it being so cold. I ended up buying a nice pair of Fawn Duckwings. Cant wait till next time.
