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

    #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

    HI! I am taking over the monthly egg swap for Chickenlover54 so please be patient with me as I learn.

    I will be out of town on vacation from Wednesday, June 30 to Monday, July 5 so please do not expect any emails from me during that time. I will be far away from computers.

    If anyone has any questions - just post them here and I'm sure someone can help you!!

    I do have a question regarding "#12 MIXED COLOR PARENTS ARE TO BE CONSIDERED CROSS BREEDS"

    does this mean they are mutts? or are they still considered pures?

    Thanks!!

    As I understand it if they can't produce breed standard colors then they would be considered mutts.. Not that they are mutts by blood but by breed standards they are.
