Under Twelve Hours

In just under twelve hours we are now down to our winter stock, I love Craigslist. As a matter of fact, I don't know how I sold things without it.
The calls started pouring in early this morning and most of them were the normal "hem hauling" around. Then A guy called and asked to buy the whole lot. I am sure he was a animal broker but if he wanted everything then I would make a deal with him.

We ended up selling the two Pygmy goats plus two Spanish goats I really was not wanting to sell but the guy made an offer I could not refuse on them, doubling my money.
Every rooster is gone, all 15 of them and he even bought the latest chicks we hatch as a straight run.
The three Flemish Giant rabbits that were eating fifty pounds of feed every two weeks are finally gone. I hate to say we lost money on these rabbits due to the feed we have put into them. I bet I would have had to get $75.00 a piece for them to come out. I was at the point of just giving them away or eating them to save on the feed bill, but a little money is better than nothing.
He also bought some four year old pet chickens we had laying around. They quit laying a year ago but he had to have them.

I was getting worried on how we were going to afford Christmas but this right here did it for us. Plus, now we have the money to get to the rabbit show I promised the youngest we would go to this weekend.

I want to say a big howdy to the new members of the Modern Day Redneck family. "Howdy"
and welcome to the family. Just to let you know, if you disagree with me or have a question on something, just let me know.


  1. Congratulations, that's great! Maybe I should try Craiglist to sell the two extra horses we have hanging around. Hmmm...

  2. Congrats! Don't you just love it when it all works out, makes up for the times it doesn't *wink*

    I've never been on Craigslist, may have to take a looksee! May be a good marketing tool for us as well, thanks for sharing the idea!

  3. I tell you, I was not a believer at first either but a couple of years ago I had some old wore out tires I did not have a place for and someone told me to put them on Craig's list. I told them they are wore out and nobody will ever buy them but they insisted. With in two hours they were sold.

    I have sold tools, cages, stuff found on the side of the road, animals and you name it.
    It all depends on how you word the ad and what time of the day you put it on.

    I hope this helps.
