Animal swap spring schedule posted

STEPHENSON — The Northern Poultry, Pigeon, and Rabbit Club (NPPRC) announces its spring 2018 feather and fur swap season. The spring swap schedule will begin on Saturday, March 31, at Marinette Farm and Garden in Marinette. The next swap will be held on Saturday, April 21, at Stephenson Marketing Coop in Stephenson. The third swap will take place on Saturday, May 12, at Tractor Supply Company in Marinette. The last swap of the fall season will be held on Saturday, June 2, at Peshtigo Feed Mill in Peshtigo. All the swaps will run from 8 a.m. to noon local time, rain or shine. The public is invited and welcome. There is no admission fee for the buyers or sellers. Swap participants are reminded that they are responsible for complying with all state and local rules and regulations regarding transportation and sale of animals.

These swaps are the perfect opportunity for 4-H members and others looking for some good quality animals or birds. Many of the sellers offer hard to find pure breeds of rabbits, poultry, and pigeons. You can often find exotic pheasants, small animals, pets, and even livestock. These swaps are open to the public and there is no admission charge for buyers or sellers.

People are invited to buy, sell, or trade all types of birds, rabbits, small animals, pets, livestock, and equipment. Participants must provide their own cages. The NPPRC has members from all over the central U.P. and northeastern Wisconsin, interested in poultry, pigeons, and/or rabbits as a hobby. The group has monthly meetings and several social events throughout the year.
