Rare Breeds Auction

Postby Marina » Sat Mar 19, 2016 3:23 pm

This year I forgot to let everyone know that it was on - too busy I guess. It has been and gone this past weekend, on Sunday the 13th of March.

It was ideal weather and over 250 lots were entered. Did anyone buy chooks or other animals?

This year the Christchurch Poultry, Bantam and Pigeon Club had a display and I helped out there. Plenty of people stopping for a chat which was great!

They are Gotlands - I believe they are more commonly grey (sheep are new to me so I am on a steep learning curve!!) I think they're awesome though :)

I also had a look at the ducks at the auction - I'm interested in getting some so was great to be able to see different breeds in person.
