    Alright for those gearing up for Spring and getting ready to get new chicks or get rid of some old hens for some new pullets, the McDonough Tractor Supply off Highway 81 E will be holding it's annual Chicken Swaps for Spring. To avoid any confusion we will only be doing these swaps February, March, April and May and they will be held on the last Saturday of the month. The first swap will be on February 27, 2016 from 9:00am to 3:00pm.
    The same rules apply as last year. Trading, swapping is perfectly fine but if you are a hobby farmer or are knowingly in the business of selling chicks or even adult birds the GDoA does ask that you go ahead and sign up for a Poultry Dealers License. I believe it was $25-35.00 and is good for 1 year. They will have a representative on site doing the paperwork and taking checks and will also be actively checking for sick birds that may be on site.This swap is open to all poultry including chickens, ducks, turkey, quail, pheasant, geese and anything else i may have forgotten in the poultry class. MEAT rabbits will also be allowed at this event. Anyone with questions feel free to call and ask or respond here.

    A Chicken Swap isn't what you think it is. The swap is for customers to swap birds.
