Rare Breeds Sales
These are held twice a year in Spring and Autumn.
All entries are examined and graded by breed specialists prior to the auction to maintain the highest quality of stock offered for sale.
These events are catalogue sales and entries must be submitted on the official entry form before the closing date, usually four weeks prior to the sale.
Entry forms for these sales are available approximately 10 weeks prior to the sale.
Christmas Poultry Sales
In 2012 these will be held on Tuesdays 4th 11th and 18th December and on Friday 21st December.
All dead-stock, whether Long Legged or Oven Ready, must be pre-booked as each auction will be subject to a maximum number of entries.
Due to changes in the legislation governing the slaughter of poultry, we are no longer able to offer slaughtering facilities at the market. As a result, we anticipate very little demand for live Christmas Poultry. Any live birds entered on the above dates will therefore be sold during the course of the normal poultry auction.
Birds will be sold in the order in which bookings are received.
Each bird must be clearly labelled with the vendor's name and the weight of the bird in kilogrammes. The label may also have the weight in pounds and ounces at the vendor's discretion to assist customers unfamiliar with metric weights & measures.
Dead birds must be presented in a clear polythene bag which must not be sealed.
The stated weight of all dead stock will be liable to verification by Trading Standards Officers prior to sale.
