I will be holding an Exotic Animal & Bird sale on May 4, 2013 at 10:00am at the Innisfail Auction Mart. This is not part of the Odd & Unusual that regularly happens there. I will be limiting and monitoring the entries to eliminate poor consignments. All entries must be pre registered. I know its hard to know what you want to bring, but simply booking 10;20;30 etc lots is okay. If you want me to advertise, and potentially line up buyers it is best to send me a list of what your bringing, especially those rare listings. There will only be 800 lots sold - so the sale can finish at a decent time. There will be a registered miniature horse and donkey section. There will also be a lineup of exotics, that have not been seen available in Alberta for many many years. Here is a quick run threw of what is already consigned -- There are approx. 450 lots already booked!

Heritage/Exotic Turkeys - Blue Slate, Bourbon Red, Royal Palm, Red Pencilled Palm.
Exotic Ducks - Cuban Tree Ducks, White Faced Tree Ducks, Black Belly Tree Ducks, Chileo Widgeon Ducks, Bahama Pintails, Silver Bahama Pintails, Rosybills, Red Heads, Blue Wing Teal, Wood Ducks, Tufted, Apricot Woods, Marble Teal.
Geese - Sebastapol, Pilgrim, Egyptian, African, Embden, Roman, Chinese, Buff.. etc.
Swans - Black, Whooper & Mute
Francolins - Erkel

Wallaroos & Wallabies
Capybara - Pending babies
I might offer a Camel.
I may also offer a pair or 2 of Aracaris/Toucans

Many Registered Miniature horse breeders will have quality animals at the sale. Listings will be posted on the site when info is received.
Registered Zebus may also be available - info will be posted online.

There are a majority of all the regular birds already consigned, these are just some of the exotics to look forward to so far.

If your interested in consigning, please contact me, sooner the better - Or book online.

Wallaroo must be a North American term, never heard it down in Australia.
Sounds like an interesting sale.

Everyone needs a Camel!

No Bactrians - just dromedaries.

Wallaroos are a sub specie. Will be pulling a joey from one of my females anytime now!

What does that mean?

Just a type of Kangaroo...

From Wikipedia:
A wallaroo is any of three closely related species of moderately large macropod, intermediate in size between the kangaroos and the wallabies. The name "wallaroo" is a portmanteau of wallaby and kangaroo. The term is not generally used by Australians. In general, a large, slim-bodied macropod of the open plains is called a "kangaroo"; a small to medium-sized one, particularly if it is relatively thick-set, is a "wallaby": most wallaroos are only a little smaller than a kangaroo, fairly thickset, and are found in open country. All share a particular habit of stance: wrists raised, elbows tucked close into the body, and shoulders thrown back, and all have a large, black-skinned rhinarium. The best-known species is 'Macropus robustus', which is known as the Wallaroo.

Pack with them... just like we pack with llamas (all related too).
I tell ya, no bear would be messing with us if we were leading a camel Razz

But I didn't think dromadaries did well in our weather.. just the bactrians???

Now who doesn't need a TOUCAN! I fell in love with the first one I met in a sanctuary in Mexico and have been smitten ever since! Their movements are so reptilian. I know they can't be used as pack animals, but at least they can lay!

A toucan! Now we're talking - husband has never said anything negative about toucans!

Heda, perhaps you married the wrong man.

Doug is all in whenever I mention another animal. Yaks? Yep! Gnus? Gnu bet! He is the worst animal enabler out there and if I show up at this auction Ty may just make a mint off me.

Heda, perhaps you married just the right guy!

When we married he stipulated that he had done goats and would not do them again, and he would never tolerate camelids of any sort. He is also drawing the line at two dogs and unless I keep them in the barn no cats are permitted. He wants his son to visit more and son is violently allergic to cats.

But I have rather a lot of the permitted animals. Last count, almost 200 of them...

But no toucans yet...
