    I heard that there was going to be a fall swap meet for the first time at the Shiawassee County Fairgrounds. Does anyone have any information?

    Thanks in advance.

    The Small Animal Fall Swap Meet is October 4th at the fairgrounds, according to the county fair website. No other info about it, but at least there's a where and when.

    Thanks for the information. I know the spring swap started at 6am.

    We have roosters for sale and if they don't sell by then, I plan on driving up there.

    It's a nice drive and not too far from Fowlerville. Lucky for me we only live five minutes from the fairground. If that.

    My daughter and I drove up there 2 years ago for the spring swap. We purchased a Old english for her showmanship bird. This year it won Reserve Grand Champion bantam hen at the Fowlerville fair.
    So there is good stock at the swap.

    A few weeks ago someone told me that they were having the fall swap and that is perfect to sell the roosters!

    Hmm. I've never been, actually. Maybe I'll check it out this year. So much of what they do there year round is horse shows, it's easy to forget the other few things going on?

    I ran into a friend who was going to go until she heard it was $50.00 for a spot. Has anyone heard anything on this yet?
    what are they going to charge for buyers?
