    [​IMG] took 1 roo and 3 hens to a local auction because I needed the pen for 7
    cuckoo maranas that were in a too small pen ,, my wife watched me leave
    laughing ,, she thought I would come home with more chickens than I left with ,
    I had told her I would not do that as I just needed the pen so after the
    auction was 4 gone and 17 coming home ,, I just can't help myself.... I keep
    telling her that I didn't buy all they had , but there wasn't many folks in
    the pay up line .

    Hubby couldn't understand why I opted for this house. Tiny, not to great area................ 2 1/2 blocks from the auction! Short blocks too. I can walk there. Walking back is a little more difficult, but I can't have him pick me up, cause he'd see what I bought waaaaayyyy too soon.

    I love auctions:ya [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
