    DD and I went to action to get rid of some roos and a billy goat. I got rid of 2 partidge cochin, 1 buff silkie roo and 1 pendencsa roo. I also got rid of a nigerian dwarf billy. With all the cost, I ended up making $29!!!!! Got to hatch chicks to sell.

    I ended up buying 3 white peachicks, 1 calico baby turkey (but it's about a month old or 2)and a nanny pygmy goat. I bought my sister 2 of THE prettiest pygmy billy goats I have ever seen. They are white with black spots and they have light blue eyes!! One is fuzzy and the other is slick haired.

    The Auction started at 12:30 had to have poultry checked in by 10:30 so we got there about 9:45 am and did not leave until 8:45 pm.

    I am tired!!! I was lucky to get a seat where the fans blew on me the whole time so the temp was nice.

    2manyhats: If the neighbors complain I will tell them it's no worse than there loud music, drunken singing, and drunken yelling they do on the weekend.

    PC: You have got to look into moving to the country!!! There are a lot of farms for sale on the way to the Ozarks. I don't live in the Ozarks but it's beautiful there and cost of living is lower here! Just think how much fun Drumstick would have in the country!

    I will try to post pics later. It's my turn to sit with my parents so I won't be home until tomorrow night.

    Quote:True. Also, no louder than the cars, trucks and motorcycles with no muffler. Maybe someday I'll get some pea foul.
