    Interesting. Were they selling only bulk or did you get a single bird yourself?

    Edit : In Yorkshire every single face is worthy of some gritty portrait!

    They sell them in multiple lots, the highest bidder can take one or more, the under bidders have the chance of the rest, at the hammer price. We only wanted the one. All the local farmers supply the birds, and can be traced back to the farm.

    It was full of characters, local farmers, so planning another visit at the next cattle market, will have more time to photograph as i am not in the market for a cow!
