Our stand at the Kington Show was a hive of activity from the moment the show opened until 5 o'clock in the afternoon. Virtually all the birds I had on the stand were sold on the day, and several orders have been received since the show by people who visited our stand.... Full Article Posted: 18/11/2013

Just to let you know that the Cream Legbars I got from you are doing really well and laying nearly every day, They are the best we have seen as there are a lot of bad ones about. Yours are a class act, and my husband and I are very happy with them.

This is a sale that I have supported since it started some 5 years ago on the Royal Welsh Showground at Builth Wells. . Although the auctioneer had to work hard, and prices were generally back from last year's very successful sale, I was very satisfied with the prices that I achieved. A quartet of Cream Legbars that included my 2 year old stock cockerel and 3 yearling hens fetched £22 per head; Cuckoo Marans hatched in February 2012 having laid consistantly since February made £20 per head and the Nordfolk Greys made £18 per head.

In 2014 I only took birds to two auctions all year. In November I sold both Norfolk Greys and Silver Laced Wyandottes at the Ross Bird Sales.
I am getting a lot of enquiries for Norfolk Greys. They are the most delightful birds to keep as they lay very well, especially in the winter, and they don't eat you out of house and home, and always look busy without being flighty.
The Silver Laced Wyandottes were the star of the show last year as they laid almost non stop from February to November and apart from selling eggs, even the late hatched pullets sold very quickly.
