    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 no fun when we have to wait for incubator's 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 last month's swap, but for the most part, everything 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.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The rules

    So big rule #1 If you have mutts you will probably only get mutts
    #2 You can NOT pick a certain breed
    #3 All swappers must be signed up by December 10th
    #4 the eggs have to be in the mail on or before the 24th
    a. If you are unable to send your eggs on time, you must contact me, or you will be barred from future swaps!
    #5 YOU MUST ACQUIRE A DELIVERY CONFIRMATION NUMBER, AND SEND IT TO ME WHEN YOU SEND YOUR EGGS
    #6 Everyone will be required to send 6 eggs (you're welcome to send more)
    #7 Please package the eggs carefully. Individually wrapped and secured so they have the best chance of surviving the trip.
    #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
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I have an odd question and I will understand if the answer is no-what If I cant take eggs now but I can send eggs to people? I mean my bator is on the fritz and cant incubate right now:-( But how about trading some of my eggs for eggs I could use ans want in the early Spring-I understand it would be taking a risk but I would only accept trades if the people are realy well known? I just had to ask since Nov swap!!

    Il be the first to swap 3 slpit lav silkie eggs and 3 + olive eggs??

    PLEASE BE SURE TO READ THE RULES!!

    I'M GETTING A BIT TIRED OF HAVING TO TRACK DOWN EGGS. I UNDERSTAND THAT THINGS COME UP, BUT THERE IS NO REASON WHY YOU CAN'T TAKE 10 SECONDS OUT OF YOUR LIFE TO SEND ME AN EMAIL, SO I CAN MAKE OTHER ARRANGEMENTS. I DO NOT MATCH PEOPLE UP UNTIL AFTER THE SIGN-UPS ARE OVER, SO IF FOR ANY REASON YOU DON'T THINK YOU CAN PARTICIPATE, PLEASE LET ME KNOW!!

    IF YOU CANNOT GET YOUR EGGS OUT ON TIME, YOU NEED TO LET ME KNOW! VIOLATORS OF THIS RULE WILL BE BARRED FROM FUTURE SWAPS.
