Hi All,

PLEASE NOTE that due to recent incidents of Rota-virus in PIGEONS, mainly in NSW but also in WA and one site in Victoria, we will not be accepting pigeon entries for our April Auction.

The Authorities in NSW have cancelled pigeon racing and sales for that state.

I don't know what Vic. bodies have decided but it is not worth taking chances.

Please remember that our auction is filling steadily and we have limited pen numbers left.

Also please confirm early bookings and advise, if you can, the breeds and gender of entries.

Regards Ian B

Hi All,

All standard pens have been taken and we have only a few bantam pens left for this sale,

You can still give us a call as we are taking names of potential sellers for a standby list.

There are usually cancellations due to illness, stock sold or a visit from a fox etc.

The, already comprehensive, list of entries will be updated as soon as I receive details from more sellers.

Regards Ian B

I would like to highlight a new entry in this sale.

We have some Sicilian Buttercups entered, three hens and a rooster.

I have never seen this breed before and they will be an interesting addition to an already expansive list.

Thank you to the Kyneton Club for hosting this event. It was my first auction to purchase my first chickens. Got the ones I wanted, some super birds, and had a really interesting and entertaining day out. :th
