Today was Day 2 of the Mt. Hope Spring Exotic Sale. I have to say I am always amazed/surprised at how much money a person will pay for that one must have chicken.
I watched Tolbunt Polish, a reverse trio, sell for $65 a head. Which, if you know what a Tolbunt Polish is and what they normally go for, that was pretty cheap.
A Dark Brahma rooster, on the other hand, sold for $350.
We saw an Old English Game Hen with 10 chicks sell for $75. Then a white flemish rabbit with 7 babies sold for $70. I'm seriously beginning to think I am in the wrong business!!
Spotted skunks, $250.00, wallabies for $2500, and 2 baby emus brought $300 each!
I bought a $10 rabbit for $10. Thank goodness there aren't any crazies
buying mutt rabbits for $50 each right now. (Probably just before
Easter they did, though.)
