STEPHENSON—The Northern Poultry, Pigeon and Rabbit Club (NPPRC) announces its fall 2011 feather and fur swap season.
 The fall swap schedule will begin on Saturday, Sept. 10, at the Menominee County Annex Building in Stephenson.
 The second swap will take place on Saturday, Sept. 24, at Marinette Farm and Garden in Marinette, Wis. The next swap will be held on Saturday, Oct. 1, at the Tractor Supply Co. in Marinette, Wis. The last fall swap will be on Saturday, Oct. 8, at the Peshtigo Feed Mill in Peshtigo, Wis.
 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,” said a spokesperson.
 The NPPRC has members from all over the central U.P. and northeastern Wisconsin, interested in poultry, pigeons, and/or rabbits as a hobby.
