Central Coast Feather Fanciers sale

Central Coast Feather Fanciers will hold their Fall Poultry Sale Sept. 17th at Templeton Feed and Grain, 9 am - noon. It's the time of year that breeders are thinning their flocks, so these birds are excellent. It's a great way to get started or add to your flock. Young layers and exhibition quality birds will be among the sale birds.

Coming to the sale gives you a chance to visit with these breeders and get ideas for moving your flock forward. If you are keeping a few hens for eggs, this is the place to acquire hens from top egg production lines that are also beautiful. Try a breed you haven't owned before.

I've been delighted with my Speckled Sussex, who came to me from CCFF president Larry Stallings. CCFF member Barbara Bullock owns these Buttercups. No guarantees either of these breeds will be available, but be assured that the birds you find will be delightful.
