Dozens of good sized roosters and cockerels, plenty of Muscovies, Young turkeys - would be worth a trip for you. (probably won't come up before about 11am - miscellaneous and bantams come up first.)
The better pullets and hens will start in March as the breeders start culling. Pair of nice Gold Legbar pullets. Some Rocks, Ancona and Barnevelders, back yard hens and pullets.

Was a great sale, spent way too much but got some very nice birds and plenty of ducks and roosters.

Glad that you had a successfully expensive day Dooley. I only sold - resisted buying any thing. Hoped to catch up with you but I left early.

Short Story
A couple came up to me at the auction and asked for some advice for their first backyard chooks. After successfully steering them away from the 'brown ones' and explaining how I knew that they were not young, we looked at some Marans and some Australorp pullets. They asked lots of sensible questions and then asked which ones I would choose. My response was which ever ones appealed most to them but if they wanted to give them names, the Marans would be easier to tell apart.
He replied

'"Oh, we won't be naming them" :hahaha

Was interesting for my first time at auction, got $20 each for partridge silkie pullets, $32 each for one pen of cross maran pullets but my next pen of the same thing went for $10 :hmmm: , cross cockerals was a waste of time, $1 each :roll: .
Had my eyes on a nice trio of swinhoe pheasants, but when they hit $50 and i could tell the other bider was very determined i backed out, maybe next time.,

Nice to have caught up with you. It's good to put a face to a name
.
My Marans cross only made $24 each. They were hens and had earned their keep for a couple of years (and will keep going for a few more), pullets generally sell for more.
2 pens of Barnies made their reserve. Bought 1 pair home rather than drop the price. 2 Araucana pullets, $56 each, nice girls but I have better for next seasons' breeding. Large cockerels averaged $10 (for pure bred) Better than continuing to feed them. Not sure what my Silkies got - probably similar to yours.
