I took 19 of my birds and their babies to the flea market yesterday. People started to collect. But a man came and gave me $90.00 for all of them . Including the boys. So hubby let him have them and so did I but I regret it now. You see I am pretty certain he is gonna slaughter them. All of them. That's Mama, Taco, Tico, Honey Mustard, Heckyl, Jeckyl, and Dr. Evil. Plus others. I only wish I didn't help take the birds to his house! How horrible for them! I should've closed the door and driven off! But hubby made me stick to the agreement. And told me to get used to it if I'm ever going to make a go of this! I'm glad they sold quick. But I hate where they are now. I want to go get them....but they are probably dead. I am literally in tears right now! The money is helping pay for the feed and the care for the buff orpingtons I have. And I KNOW that no matter what I had to get rid of them anyway. They are too aggresive for buff orpingtons. OH I feel I'm at a catch22. I can't stand it! I wish the went as pets! I think I'll charge a much higher price next time to assure somebody who will raise them nice will buy them. OH SO SAD INDEED!
