    Went to our local auction tonight like I do almost every week. I didn't plan on getting anything since most times the birds there are either obviously sick or birds that I have no use for, but I took a cage anyway just in case. Whenever I don't take a cage I usually end up buying something and then having to buy another cage.

    Just so happened that a new breeder, a person I have never before seen at this auction, decided to come to the sale tonight. He had nice birds...some shamo gamefowl, buckeyes, blue wyandottes, ameraucanas, white rocks, and runner ducks.

    I came home with the black Ameraucanas, and they are nice! [​IMG] I'm not skilled in SQ ratings, but they look pretty good to me! I tried to get some pics of them, but most of them turned out as butt-shots [​IMG] So hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to get good pics.

    I could KICK myself silly for not getting those blue wyandottes! I'm sure I'll never see them in person again! [​IMG]
