There is no website. It is run by a fellow off site. You show up the day ( I think Friday) and drop off your birds.
It is a huge auction, not sure what time or day you can drop them off, some people last year I think were there Thursday night already dropping off...

Heading to Innisfail tomorrow (Thursday)
Going to stay in line overnight to get a few consignments in. Last year We arrived about 10am on the Friday and got into line. Didn't unload until 3pm and completely missed the sheep/goat sale! Won't get caught up there again.
Hope to meet up with some familiar faces cheers
Should be a fun weekend sunny

Yes prices were back to the high prices of five years and more ago. Some I talked to haven't seen prices like that for at least 5 years. It was very nice if you were selling. Quality was very good for most things and there were the few "dishonest" labelings of breed and sex but it is buyer beware and educate yourself.

I bought 7 feeder lambs...which I thought were amazing prices...$55- $75 per head and weighing from 30lbs to 60 lbs. 5 were woolie breeds which I have no idea of what breed but they are 'beefy' lambs. 2 are twins a ewe lamb and a ram lamb...white Dorper/Katahdin crosses. The ram lamb is intact so I will grow him out some and he could easily beccome my replacement ram (sorry TommyD, you just bumped to second pick!) Sad But new guy has a better build....

We were happy to see many familar faces and even met some new ones. It was great to talk to Vivian, Chicken bandit(Brent), Dan Smith, Piet, Jessie Elger, Ty, Jared, Jackie, Piet, Jeff, and many more. Was worth the trip just to chat and catch up!

Next trip will be Ty's sale May 14!

I attend many auction and sales not just bird sales but find that most items get more than retail ( except mine ), I had a farm sale last fall, to big and to much to do it the way I usually sell items for so hired an auctioneer friend of mine, a used very dirty HovaBator Egg Incubator sold for 265.00 the one gallon water pails that lay on the side went for 25.00 the tall galvanized hanging feeders that needed repair sold for 40 and 50 dollars.

Awesome sale. My boxes went insanely high, I only managed to take 80ish boxes to the sale, out of the 150 I had built, so much to do, and so little time. My boxes averaged almost $100/box.

Some of my notable prices:

Peking Ducks - Over $100pr
8 Wk Old Polish chicks (2 per box, usually pairs) $70 - 165/box.
St. Cochin - Various colors (8 wks old, 2 per box) - $100 - 145/box.
Barnyard Cross Rooster - $45
2 Week old Runner and Crested Ducklings (3 per box) $60 - 145/box.

.... if that gives a rough idea.. Here is a reply to the sale I posted elsewhere... I had some.. "Interesting purchases" to say the least... haha.

Had a great time. Took 2 FULL horse trailers of critters.. did very well on everything. Absolutely insane prices on alot of my birds.

I purchased a few items that I was very happy with, and others shook my head, and asked myself " did I buy that for!?" haha.

Sunday. First animal of the day. HUGE 6 year old Yak Bull, beautiful animal. My aunt and I are watching it, she gets up to leave, I say, hmm that would be cool for a couple hundred bucks, she shakes her head and leaves for a half hour.

Comes back... well I then had to tell her I baught it for $300! oh $@%$!!!!!! haah.

I also got a couple pairs of Emus, so did "Grandma Art" , so we load the Yak into the front of 1 trailer, then the emus. Well we loaded the wrong emus (Grandma Art's, and mine - I aid her in her adiction, by delivering everything), so the lady who we needed to trade emus with came, and we got talking, well she purchased the Yak from me in the parking lot! Phew!

Also purchased a bunch of Barbadoes sheep. Went to load them so myself and a worker went to catch them, well the ram came running at me, jumped about 5 feet and smoked me right in the face....pretty much knocked me out for a while lol... Pretty painfull lol.

Anyone farmilliar with a Natureform incubator, holds about 2500 eggs. I purchased one of those, along with an incubator that holds about 1000 - 1200. Anyone looking for some large incubators? haha.

What else.. Cockatiels, Finches, Partridge Chantecler Bantams, SQ White Leghorns (From Rockadoodle - Hally on the group) also Wheaton Dutch Bantams, Lionhead rabbits, Whooper Swan, Pygmy Goats, Peafowl and lots of Pot Belly pigs.

Where the trailers full coming home? Yess....

LONG, TIRING weekend, but really enjoyed it.

Ty people know by now that your birds are going to be quality, and you always have everything boxed up so great.
I went, so many people I stayed in the building for all of five minutes. I can't hear at those sales anyways, so really can't bid and besides I sure didn't need, want, crave anything. Met up with lots of friends and got my chicks delivered. Love looking at all the boxes and saw some sweet little silver sebrights, one dead in the box, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Was looking for a little buck rabbit for Lizzy Blue Eyes, BUT thank heavens I ran into Jackie and Steve and they convinced me I didn't need a rabbit farm. And besides the prices were very high for bunnies.
