I didn't intend to buy.... honest !!! but there were some lovely birds and the prices were good. I could have bought a lot more, so I was restrained well my husband was and he had the bidding card, ( note to self : in future maintain possession of said card .)
All birds entered were inspected and had to meet breed type, a red card was given for exhibition quality and a blue card for any rejects and the reason for rejection given, so we were confident that we were buying good quality birds.We bought two POL Silver Dorking, smashing birds. For now they are in with my other hens but will eventually make up part of the breeding group for 'meat' to be crossed with an Indian Game cock.
I also bought two dozen hatching eggs.! One dozen Welsummer and a dozen Speckled Sussex. So they will go in the incubator tonight and in three weeks time we will see what we have.
A brilliant day!!
