Postage alone ranges on average between $10 to $20.  I recycle when I can.  I also use egg cartons for packing which cost 50¢ each locally, or 44¢ if I buy online and get 100 or so.  Since I don't sell eating eggs I don't often get egg cartons back.

 

However, so far I have a little surplus on the shipping fees I've collected.  I was thinking of doing a "Showcase Showdown" or something, one final game near the end of the year, where only the winners, i.e., those who have paid the shipping fee, can play, and where that prize would be shipped for free.  Of course that prize would be depending on how well the hens are laying.

 

Next Spring I hope to be able to offer exchequer Leghorns and blue exchequer leghorns, as well as Isabel leghorns.

If everything goes decent with my hand, once my girls mature and start laying, i will definitely participate. I will have Seramas, lavender orps, dorkings, swedish flower silkie and polish for sure and of course some cool mixes. I'll try to host a game or 2 a month and do a "free" game once every 3 or 4 months where I don't charge shipping (as long as I am still working and the husbands job keeps going well). we are very blessed and I believe "It is in giving that we receive":love I am just truly praying that I don't have to give up a lot of my birds due to not being able to keep up on all the work:th

Priority boxes are free from usps. I have tons of bubble wrap (you can buy 150ft of it for $15) and you get a discount if you print your labels at home on usps website. It can done very closely to the true cost of the shipping label. smile.png No harm tho. If someone doesn't want pay the fee someone else will.

I just want to say thank you to all of you for your kindness. I am enjoying this thread tremendously and absolutely would enter in a contest if shipping were free. Don't get me wrong I know it's by far worth it but money can get tight as DH2B and I are trying to gey out of debt and saving for a wedding and a house. Not trying to give anyone a sob story or anything just explaining. I would love to play and I will when I can otherwise there's no way I could afford real ayam cemanis or many of the other awesome breeds I hear you guys talk about. Our other problems right now are space. With 50 grow out cockerals headed for the freezer things are a bit tight around here. I was recently gifted some eggs by another bycer and only had to pay shipping. We got some amazing eggs and I'm really hoping we get a good hatch. Someday in the future I would absolutely love to participate in this thread as an egg donator. We plan to have CL, silkies, Orpingtons, OEGB and a few other breeds.

I hope this thread goes on for a long time and I hope to be able to join in the spring. In the meantime I'm loving reading it and watching all of you play. smile.png

@meltel
What color Dorkings and silkies do you have? Dorkings are a breed we've been considering trying out but they're hard to find around us and I want good stock. Any aggression from the roos?

Lavender orpingtons you say......😏

I think what you're saying as far as winners n such is pretty much already going on, isn't it? I am in a small town as well, only one option for Internet, and we fight wifi congestion AND being fed (the whole town) via microwave antenna... So I don't always know which is making me slow lol... Just frustrating when I know the answer, put it but 5 answers are there already, (as of 5+ seconds ago according to the bar above the comment) or, I see it say "new post" I refresh and it's a question or photo and answers already... That's why I suggested a chat room. It would live refresh. If there were separate channels it could also clean up some of the chatter on the help threads where it seems like more hanging out, than talking about anything on topic of chickens... I'm relatively new, and a lot of ppl here have known each other for years, and so it's normal for them, but it is discouraging for a newer person such as myself trying to ask a question, which the thread is for, but feel like I might be intruding on a fun conversation of fixing a pickup or something lol
I'm still figuring out this chicken stuff, but loving almost every minute of it 😎👍

Sometimes we play games that are turn based and sometimes the games are a free for all. Really, I like when the hosts mix it up, keeps it exciting. If you know you can't play because of your Internet connection, wait out the games that are 'first answer gets the point'. It's nice to level the playing field so to speak but I don't like the fact it would limit the kinds of games we can play. Ya know?
