    This is the April Egg Swap. You will not know what breeds you are getting unless you make arrangements with your partner to find out. Sign ups are open until 09 April 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!!

    ****I have added an NPIP option this month. There may be less chance of getting eggs if you require NPIP. I'll see how it works this month.

    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.



    The rules

    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 09 April 2012
    #4 The eggs have to be in the mail on or before 24 April 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 and your swap partner 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. 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 "APRIL EGG SWAP" IN THE SUBJECT OF YOUR PM
    #11 YOU MAY PARTICIPATE UP TO 4 TIMES THIS MONTH - ONLY 1 PM IS NECESSARY FOR ALL ENTRIES - JUST BE CLEAR. I will be using the link at the bottom of this post as my main data table but I will use the PM's as back-up.
    #12 MIXED COLOR PARENTS ARE TO BE CONSIDERED CROSS BREEDS IF IN QUESTION PM ME.
    ex. you have partridge Cochins, SL Cochins and buff Cochins in one pen then the offspring are to be considered crosses.
