This is the January Egg Swap with eggs set for a Valentines day hatch. It looks like the majority of you are in favor of a Valentine's Day hatch.

I want everybody to feel that they can join and that the eggs will be sent. This is why a deadline is set.

IF YOU DON'T THINK YOU CAN GET YOUR EGGS OUT ON TIME, DO NOT SIGN UP!

Please make sure that you are ready for eggs when you join this swap. It is not possible to wait for your incubator to get empty.

There have been problems in the past with people not receiving, or not informing 'us' that they have received, their eggs.

Please people, make sure you post here when you receive your eggs!!

There were a few problems with previous swaps, but for the most part, everything has went well.

Disclaimer
This swap is not endorsed by BYC (owner, website, staff, etc.).  The BYC Staff is not responsible and will not mediate if something goes "wrong" or a deal goes "bad". If you choose to participate in a swap, it is best to know who you are swapping with and not to swap more than you can afford to lose.  The BYC Staff is sensitive because some past swaps have not worked out.  We want our members to feel comfortable having fun with these and other social interactions, but please keep in mind that there were issues with some organizers and swappers not following through on their commitments in the past.  You must be 18 to participate.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
