    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.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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.

    Note the early closing day for sign ups! I have also made the ship date earlier as well. I am closing early to allow for the possibility of eggs being sent for new years hatch. I never saw the other thread.

    SWAPPERS ARE NOT REQUIRED TO SEND OUT ON THE 7TH!!!! Just wanted to make it a possibility.

    Ok in addition to your normal details please also provide these answers in your pm:

    1. Do you want your eggs for the new years hatch?
    2. Can you send your eggs for the new years hatch?

    Top priority to recievers will go to the ones that can send. Multiple entries may not all be eligible for multiple new years swaps, due to entry constraints.

    I'm in x 2 or 3 . I could send one out for the New Year's Hatch. The other 1 or 2 wouldn't be in time unless the girls really lay well.

    I will have no problem sending my eggs for new years hatch as the girls are laying like crazy. It doesn't bother me if I get mine for the New Years hatch. [​IMG]
