A quick google search produced a nice surprise of their website IdahoBirdBreeders.com , there was more information on the site about the auction.
I took a few of my own birds, mostly because I didn't want to seem like some green behind the ears newbie. (But really, shh.. I am).
Wow-- all the birds.. there were so many!
PLUS! I did get some weird rush of seeing my birds in a cage with a tag on it... breed listed.. I could almost picture a ribbon on it.... a girl can dream right?

Nope, I was wearing my big girl pants today. I had a bid card- #27.
Although the auction action was pretty entertaining in itself .
I had a plan... I wanted to walk out of there with at least 1 chicken that was laying eggs.
My opportunity came alive when a mating pair of Rosecomb bantams came up on the block... I think the feller bidding against me saw that I had that crazy determined look in my eyes and he bowed out at $12.
JUST $12! That's about as much as a trip to Starbucks or a pair of socks from Victoria's Secret.
My son pulled me away to bid on a pair of Cockatiels complete en cage' and he won!
