Saw lots of Isa browns, OEGs and roosters yesterday. Quite a few more empty cages than previous auctions.

Some prices I noted:
- a very handsome white crested polish rooster went for $50
- a pen of 4 polish x silkie pullets (3 of which laid a very decent sized egg, as seen in the cage!) went for $120 I believe.
- 2 pens of 6 coronation sussex chicks (assumed 1 roo, 5 ladies) went for $75/$90
- 2 x blue Australorp hens, 18 months old - $51

I only picked up a little buff pekin bantam with the cutest black tail.
