Birds For Sale At Shows
Just curious, because at the one show I've been to, there were no for sale signs or signs of any kind on the cages of the show birds. So I am wondering if that is one of those things that is not done. Or maybe not allowed.
I know there is an area for sale birds, but what if you would like to sell birds that you have entered in the competition?
Or if you want to purchase a bird in the competition and the breeder has no identifying sign on the cage, how do you find out who to contact?
Normally, there is an exhibitor list, or the exhibitor's name will be on the coop tag. Ask around.
If the bird is for sale, it will most likely be noted on the coop....but no harm in asking. I've had people track me down more then once to buy a bird that I've exhibited. Usually not interested in selling, but money talks.
To add to Angela's explanation...most shows don't allow FOR SALE signs to be posted on cages until AFTER judging. Exhibitor lists are usually available at the show office / table. I only know of one show, NE Poultry Congress, that charges visitors for one.
Do you mean that if it is possible to but a bird at the exhibition it will be illegal? Or perhaps I understand everything incorrect?

Most shows have an area for people to buy & sell their extra birds. Those that are ENTERED for judging may be sold, but not advertised as being for sale until after the judging is finished.
So how we come to know at first whether they are for sell or not.?
The birds in the SALE area will be for sale. The birds entered for judging will have a FOR SALE sign on their cage AFTER they've been judged if the owner is interested in parting with them. You can always look up the owner & ask, too.
