    The waverly swap is coming up on the 28th anyone going? Thinking of taking a few chanteclers with also have a few cornish(bantam) that turned out to be roosters.[​IMG]
    Do they need to be tested or anything for this swap? I am guessing not.

    Wonder how you could find out if they need tested. I might be interested in going - but that is up to the hubby and he has a thing about spending money on "gas". I could take my frizzle cochin roos there...

    I'm going [​IMG], I'm going [​IMG], I'm going [​IMG] !!!!!

    I love this sale...
    4 1/2 hour drive...But I LOVE it....

    My mom, dad, me and my hubby are going....

    NO KIDS GOING WITH THIS TIME!!!! [​IMG]

    The Spring sale was a little sad this year...
    It was really early in the year, cold, not alot of sellers and then it rained and almost everyone(sellers) packed up and left after just a few sprinkles..

    My mom and I stood in the middle of the grounds stomping our feet, screaming and crying that [​IMG] WE DID NOT JUST DRIVE 4 1/2 HOURS FOR NOTHING!!!! WE WANT ANIMALS.... [​IMG]
    No we really didn't do that, but wanted to!!!!!

    I have been going to both the spring and fall sale now for about 3 years...I think my parents are going on there 4th year.
    It is a long trip...But I look at it as my 'vacation'. [​IMG]
    It's at the fair grounds (I think that's the fair grounds). I know they have a baseball diamond there.
    It's usually loaded with sellers.
    Don't remember what the cost is to get in...I wanna say $3 a person. But don't quote me on that one..
    Last year I got one of our llama's there. Always bring enough empty cages to bring my treasures home in...

    Maybe if enough are interested we could try and meet up...

    Did I say....
    "I'M GOING [​IMG] I'M GOING [​IMG] I'M GOING [​IMG] WITH NO KIDS!!! [​IMG]"

My wife , sister and I all turn the big fifty not long ago and enjoy this time in our life the most. And we're moving to the scenic northeast to be without noise of the city and its woes of foe.
