Well how did this sale go thought about going but was only interested in 1 lot so not worth the miles, looked poor on paper.

Buyers market for sure, luckily we were buying.  trio or Marrans £18, four POL bluebells £45 and a trio of New Hampshire red bantams for my daughter for £15.
People did get a little overexcited about the fancy and laying ducks though, a few high prices there, but muscovys going for next to nothing.

Just wondering if the weather is putting people off buying. It doesn't really feel like Spring at them moment - not the part of weather where you want to get out and get stuff organised and started really.

I think the weather has a lot to do with it.  Plus the poor chickens I did buy are wondering where I have taken them, the first three days it was chucking down with rain, now they are in a foot of snow.  I think they may want to go home
