I have spoken to both auctions.
they can not accomadate me as iwould have to bring too many birds down and i would flood the market. I use to take 200 to 300 birds to the sydney auctions per week. They closed the auction because the land became too valuable for houses (aprox $800,000 per 1/4 block)
Where can you stay with 200 roosters and drakes on board?

i am looking for a market to sell at. i do not qualify for the farmers market because i do not rase the pullets that I sell as I can not buy them in small enough lots from the hatchery because of their minimum order rule.

any Ideas of a market would be greatfully accepted.

I know there's a poultry seller at Vic Market in the city. He's been there for years so people expect him to be there. I've heard many people say they especially went to the Vic market to get ducklings.

Trouble with going to a new market, you just get spur of the moment sales so it might take a few weeks to establish a market for your birds.

What about other local markets like Prahran, South Melbourne, etc?

Pakenham Racecourse market is another monthly (?) market you could try. I haven't been there yet so can't tell you anything about it. I know Ross used to sell there but he's pretty much retired from poultry keeping.

I think the Farmers market at Pakenham stopped quite a while ago.
There is a monthly Casey farmers market.

Hi, do you know what days the man at Vic market is there. I had wondered if he was still running there, as it was many years ago that I went to the Vic( sadly) I don't get out much LOL. And I have been thinking of going there for a bit of a shop, and also wondered if I might catch him on the day he is there.

Pakenham racecouse market is of interest to me as well and not too far, never been there either. I wonder if they get many sellers of birds.

He is usually there on a friday. As with most places its defiantly a case of buyer beware. I would learn to sex ducklings if you were planning on getting some from there...

Most of the farmers markets down here do not mind if you have raised them from day old or not. I used to sell the POL ISAs and go through plenty without having raised them.

They were just happy to be able to find people prepared to go with the poultry.

auctioneer Why is it they only have 2 weeks to sell them at POL? sorry I don't understand that, why there is a 2 week bracket.

Casey is a big region encompassing places like Pakenham, Berwick, Cranbourne and so on, comes under "casey council" ( zoning)

to answer your quetion
you finnishing vaccination at 14 weeks old( by victerian law all people who raze more than 1000 pullets ina a batch MUSt vaccinate them and the course is from day old to 14 weeks.) and the hatchery recommends that you sell the pullets between 16 and no later than 18 weeks old to canus the minimun loss in production and stress.
All large laying farms get their birds at 16 weeks old and we get our deliveries at 16weeks and they are all gone by 17 weeks and start laying between 20 and 22 weeks.

So does that mean if you go buy day old chickens from hatchery it is like buying a puppy that has only had its first vaccination, and is not fully covered without the rest of the course? Which vaccines does that apply to?

There are two guys, one in the middle near the toilet/atm block, and one right up the top of the fruit and vege section near the corner of Peel and Victoria St. Both are there on Saturday mornings,when I usually go so don't know about other days, but go early as by 10.30 anything good/decent is gone. The guy in the middle tends to have a bit more variety.

A warning though, Learn to sex, and also age anything you plan on buying from Vic Market.
One regularly has cages of mixed week old chicks, but it is not self service. You tell him you want four and he grabs four, the first four he can catch not the ones you are necessarily pointing at. Now technically the cage description is correct they are mixed, but if you know what you are looking at then 6 pullets amongst 50 cockerels is a very lopsided mix.
Also sometimes things are described as point of lay, and based on legs, faces, and general appearance they are considerably older than that,

I have purchased 12-14 week old pullets as replacement layers from both of them early on before I started "hatching my own", and had no complaints, about health or quality.
