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

    I am in. I wish my silkies would start setting I would be in more than once, but I guess I will just have to do in for one now.

    They have this new fangled contraption now called an incubator ...[​IMG] or get some cochins L F. My darned light brahma will not get off the nest for anything. She and a silkie were jammed in there together for about 2 weeks, now the silkie went to sit on another nest so I have three brooding in there and a black australorp that is considering it.

    That's just negligent and malicious . Maybe we need to contact our ombudsman . This is clearly a problem and there is no need for it. We pay good money to ship well packaged eggs and they are destroyed like this. I have been thinking of trying an alternate like UPS.If we all switched, they might wake up, who pays your paycheck idiots. Play football at home!
