HOAGBA Bird & Animal Auction Gardner, KS

Caging birds and small animals for the sale

Birds and animals must be visible and able to stand in cages.  Cages for birds constructed of 2” x 2           or 4” x   4” wire will not be accepted because birds could stick their heads through the cage wire & be injured


To meet USDA requirements, wire-bottom cages will be accepted if straw or cardboard covers the bottom wireThis is a MUST as we use rollers to move the birds to the selling table. No cardboard boxes or gunny sacks!!  Cages sell with the animals and birds.  


Each cage must have a clean feed and water container appropriate for the size & number of birds or animals in the cage.  NO flimsy plastic, paper, or Styrofoam water & feed containers.   Hog ring or use a glue gun to secure the containers to the cage.  It is the responsibility of the consignor to feed and water his stock daily. 


Label the cage to indicate the species & number of birds/animals in it.  Permit numbers (state and/or waterfowl) as well as the consignor’s state NPIP # should be written on the cage. 


Rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, hamsters, etc. must be sold in a solid-bottom cage with bedding.  Cages must also have a handle so that the cage can be moved without one having to put his fingers inside the cage to move it. 


Do not put rabbits and other gnawing animals in plastic tubs; they will chew their way to freedom!! 


Incompatible animals will  not be held in the same enclosure or placed near other animals that may become stressed due to their presenceSuch animals must be held in a manner that ensures the safety of other animals and the public

Cage wire should be small enough so an animal can’t stick its head through the wire.  Wire bottom cages need to have straw or cardboard covering the bottom because we use

 a roller system for

moving the cages.

Each cage needs a metal feed and water can appropriate in size to the birds in the cage. Clean tin cans work great.

This cage protects the long train of the Peafowl male.

It also has bedding in the bottom of the cage

 to protect the birds toes.
