    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.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    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.

    Hi Shelley!
    I'm considering trying out the swap, but I have a couple questions.
    If I wanted to offer 2 separate sets of pure eggs, could I trade with 2 separate partners? That way I could get, say, a set of pure LF eggs and a set of pure breed banty eggs.
    My other concern would be the shipping. Do the eggs ship well in this cold weather? I always let my PO know that I'm expecting hatching eggs, but I am worried about the freezing transit.
    I'm thinking about firin' up the 'bator at the end of the month, so this may work out for me.

    Ok before I say yes...and I really want to.... I would have to request that my eggs get to me before the deadline for sending eggs ...they would have to be sent right after the close of sign ups. My eggs to me would have to be sent by the 20th. Shelley do you want to mess with me? I also would be sending mine right out before my vacation

    so what do you think??

Don't know if I am going to play yet, we have a very cold week coming up and no matter how much light everyone says seems to matter with laying, mine quit when it is cold or raining, lol, so I'll wait and see what next week brings as far as eggs and weather go.
