    OMG!! These two were driving me nuts!!! It wasn't too bad unless I was in there feeding them. They always had to have a screaming match 'look at MEEEEE!!!' It seems like they were trying to see who was the loudest!! But they knew that 'shutUP stupid bird' would get them a towel thrown at them, so they tried not to be too annoying!

    I didn't get much for them, but it is still winter. I got as much for two males as I paid for a trio of pharoahs a few months ago, so that's not too bad! A lot of people were saying 'I've never seen a white quail'. I told my dad that the A&M eggs cost as much as the jumbo eggs do, and if people are going to pay more for them, then maybe I'll stick with those after all!! Now I just have to wait for spring. I don't need more baby quail in the house!! [​IMG]

    We have one here every week. There are actually quite a few in the area that are weekly, but this is the only one we go to. Probably because it's the only one we know how to get to! If we knew where the other ones were, we'd probably go to those too!

    I think I'm gonna take some of my extra roos next week. They were getting decent prices tonight. My luck there won't be anyone buying roosters next week [​IMG]

    We have a huge one twice a year about 45 minutes from here. It was unbelievable how much things were selling for there! I got lucky and got my critters later in the day, when most people had left or ran out of money. I got a pair of broken tort mini rex rabbits for $10. Tonight I got 1 REW mini rex doe for $11, and she was the one that went for the least. And that was at our little hicktown auction!
