DENVER – There’s a monthly chicken swap in Denver. Did you know that?
It happens every first Saturday at Earth Dog near 4th and Kalamath. Here’s a post that caught our attention from Nextdoor:
“Promoting Backyard Happiness! We host a Chicken Swap in our parking lot. The public can come and buy, sell, trade chicks, chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys, quail, goats, peacocks, rabbits, and more!
This is a great way for people to meet, talk, share information about urban homesteading! As always, EarthDog Denver reminds people to be considerate and compassionate to our animal friends, and it is a must that you learn about them and have proper housing before taking one home. We offer the swaps as a community service FREE of charge! But please note this is a Buyer Beware and Seller Beware market. It is Buyer Beware because there is no proof of what you are buying other than what you see and the reputation of the seller as you perceive it to be. No one registers sellers or has a veterinarian on staff to certify the breed or sex you are getting. Some sellers are regulars and come every month; others may not. It is Seller Beware because city buyers are more emotional about their animals and less experienced in dealing with them than country buyers. Also, big box stores have shaped most consumers' minds to think that they can return any products they don't like for any reason,and we know that most of you do not take animals back. The parking lot is only for vendors! If you like this event and other events Earthdog Denver hosts for the public then please support us! We don't take any government grants or donations.”
