I have mentioned before that we do have a lot of chooks at the moment. At last count, it was something like 24. The dorking chicks aren't chicks any longer and are ready for the main pen, so we made the decision to sell some of our chooks at auction.
That auction was yesterday.
Our birds are on the bottom row, 6 cages with information cards on them and food and water in cups. :) We had the three wyandottes, the three isa brown crosses, two isa cross cockerels and an araucana cockerel. The chooks around us were mostly silkies and australorps.
It was very well attended, lots of people having a good time. Some just looking, others buying up big.
The bidding was in a different room with a small telly showing what bird was being auctioned.
All of ours except the aracuana cockerel sold, so we took him home again. Thankfully we didn't win anything else! The chooks at home would have been quite upset with me! haha.
So our chook numbers are at a more comfortable level again - 16 chooks, and around 2 eggs a day. :)
Until next time!
