    Vicki, is the first year for this or have you done it before?

    This is our first year and all the money goes to the small animal association, which is made up of 4-H kids. They use the money to benefit all the kids. Like last year they bought a new awning for the front of the small animal barn. This is where the poultry show is held, so it is nice to have some shade. There has been talk of new cages (poultry & rabbit) and new show table boxes (rabbit) for this year, we will see.

    The Michigan Bird and Game Breeders Association also has one at the fairgrounds, but they don't do theirs until June, I believe. The 4-H kids need their animals by May 1, for our fair, so we tried to do it before the deadline, to help the kids who still needed animals.

    I hope you all can make it!!

    I have a question about the swap. I have never been to one. Do you have to take something to swap or can you just buy-what? eggs, chicks, adult birds?

    No, you don't have to bring anything. You can just come to shop, if you like! There will be a $15 fee to sellers, buyers get in free. It should be lots of fun. It is sort of like a flea market, with animals and supplies. [​IMG]

    The swap meet will be held at the Eaton County Fairgrounds in Charlotte. We will be in the back where the animals are located during fair.

    We already have several vendors signed up. We will have food available and a big raffle table with several raffles through out the day.

    Hope to see everyone there!
