East Texas Poultry Trades Day
We brought our son home from the hospital just in time to start thinking about the East Texas Poultry Trades Day at Gilmer, Texas this coming Saturday. It will be held in the Yamboree Livestock Pavillion on Hwy 271 next to the Civic Center and Walmart. The event will start at 9:00 A.M. and last until 3:00 P.M. on Saturday, September 24, 2016. Our East Texas group held our first such Trades Day last May in Gilmer. It was such a hit with the vendors (we got to visit and shop among ourselves) and our customers that our good friend who planned it all decided to go again in September. We are looking very forward to this next event. Our vendor list has grown considerably as has our customer list. The show will have everything from chickens, ducks, turkeys, guineas and such to chicken coops, meal worm kits (so you can grow your own), cages, and much more. We may even have some rabbits and goats. It's a very enjoyable day for all. If you live near Gilmer, Texas and can make it out to see us, we would love that!
The Singleton Roost will have Serama pairs for sale, Serama chicks and juveniles for sale, Guinea keets, possibly ducklings and young Eastern Wild Turkeys. We are also hoping to bring some Belgian Maline chicks and roosters. We will be there around 7:00 A.M. to get set up and ready.
There will be many breeds of chickens represented at the event. I know friends who are bringing Silkies (be still my heart). I got my beautiful Blue Cream Silkie Rooster at the last Trades Day. If you can find the time and live in the area, come on out and visit with us. You might just find a chicken or two you cannot live without. We all know how that goes!
