This is the August Online Mystery Hatching Egg Swap.
You will not know what breeds you are getting nor will you know your partner unless you insist on knowing. Then your partner may reveal themselves.
Sign ups are open until 11 August 2012 at 12:00 noon CST.
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!!
****We have fewer categories this month.
There were a few problems with previous swaps, but for the most part, everything has went well.
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.
So big rule #1 If you have mixed you will probably only get mixed
#2 You can NOT pick a certain breed.
#3 All swappers must be signed up by NOON on 11 August2012
#4 The eggs have to be in the mail on or before 27 August 2012
a. If you are unable to send your eggs on time, you must contact me, or you will be banned from future swaps!
#5 YOU MUST ACQUIRE A DELIVERY CONFIRMATION NUMBER, AND PM IT TO ME WHEN YOU SEND YOUR EGGS
#6 Everyone will be required to send at least 6 eggs except for those sending goose, turkey, or peafowl, the min for these is 4. You're welcome to send more and they can be from a different category as long as 6 are from the category you signed up for. Please try to send the cleanest eggs possible.
#7 Please package the eggs carefully. Individually bubble wrapped and secured so they have the best chance of surviving the trip. Please be sure to use enough tape on the wrap.
#8 Due to previous problems, only active members of the BYC community are eligible to participate at my discretion
#9 If you fail to fulfill your obligations on this or any other swap, you will be unable to participate in future swaps
#10 PLEASE PUT "August EGG SWAP" IN THE SUBJECT OF YOUR PM

#12 MIXED COLOR PARENTS ARE TO BE CONSIDERED CROSS BREEDS IF IN QUESTION PM ME.
