    I did a swap (more of a take, on my part) with someone. They gave me a dozen White Leghorn crosses to try out for my attempt to raise a hardier chicken in my area. In return, they are welcome to pick-of-the-litter from my Fayoumis crosses (they are being incubated together). Swaps can be real fun. I'd stay away from the need to ship eggs though. All the trouble I read about with shipped eggs just doesn't seem worth it unless you know for sure what you are getting and are paying for the expertise of an experienced packager/shipper.
