A Day Out
Today we had a day off from the usual 'must get things done' weekend. After the daily morning livestock duties we dropped the dog off at a friends and went to the Newton Abbot poultry auction. I have never been before, it was good. It wasn't the rare breeds one I thought it was, just the usual once a fortnight one. The rare breeds one is on the 28th March, I think we will go to that one too.
I was good, didn't buy anything. I hadn't intended to ( unless of course there was something special there.) it was just to see how it all worked, what condition the stock were in and the prices they made. It was interesting to see that there were also hatching eggs for sale. Worth taking a chance on for the price they were selling at I thought.
