    What Ya Got Swap is for people that have items other than hatching eggs that would like to join into the fun of a swap, however hatching eggs are also welcome in this swap. Many BYC members make very nice items such as homemade soaps, jellies & jams, candies, chicken saddles, egg carton labels, chicken drawing & portraits etc., other BYC members may have plant starts, seeds, etc. and others may just have some items such as books, egg cartons, or other items either new or used that they no longer have a need for but that some other member may find useful. If sending hatching eggs please send eggs that are no older than 4 days when shipped.

    As a rule of thumb offers must be equal to the value of 6 pure breed eggs Examples: 4-6 iris bulbs, 6 blackberry starts, and 1 16oz jar of plum jam, 1 hard bound book or 2 couple of paperback books, 2 bars of homemade soap, 2-3 chicken saddles. These are just examples and only to be used as a guideline. Please offer what you feel is a likewise offer and that can be shipped in one of the priority boxes. Remember you are paying the shipping of the item you offer.

    DESCLAMER: BYC IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS SWAP. BYC is not responsible for items sent, received or not received. Please do not pm the mod about your item. PM me. If you do not receive your item, I can not make them send them but will make sure they do not play anymore. There is a risk with any swap that you may not receive your item promised, please keep that in mind while participating.

    SWAP RULES - This list is subject to change so please check back periodically. I reserve the right the ban anyone that appears is not playing by the rules set forth.

    YOU MUST BE 18 OR OVER TO PLAY

    LIMIT 3 SWAPS PER MEMBER PER WEEK (SUNDAY-SATURDAY) Sunday starts at 12 midnight Eastern time.

    NEW MEMBERS MUST BE A BYC MEMBER FOR 3 MONTHS TO PARTICIPATE, HOWEVER THEY MUST SHIP THEIR ITEM WITH VERIFIED CONFIRMATION BEFORE THE ITEM CLAIMED WILL BE SENT TO THEM. NEW MEMBERS CAN ONLY ACCEPT ONE SWAP AT A TIME AND MUST SEND THAT ITEM WITH CONFIRMATION BEFORE THEY CAN CLAIM ANOTHER ITEM. ONCE THE NEW MEMBER HAS SENT 4 ITEMS, THEY MAY PARTICIPATE WITHOUT RESTRICTION. If you believe that you have fulfilled enough CONFIRMED swaps on another swap thread (PP thread, Bantam swap, etc), please PM me and I will contact the moderator of that swap and might clear you here as well. SEE BELOW FOR HOW TO CLAIM AND VERIFY SHIPMENT OF YOUR ITEM. FAILURE TO FOLLOW THIS RULE WILL RESULT IN BEING BANNED FROM SWAPPING.
    Members who were cleared on the old WYGS are cleared for this swap. This is just a continuation of the old thread. :)


    To claim an offer.

    Be the first to post mine and then post your offer in the same post. Please post pictures of your item if possible. You may offer a choice of items if you wish. If the thread stalls for 6 hours, try changing your offer.

    When each trade is posted, please pm or email the person who offered the item claimed and work out the shipping arrangements. If you are a new member, let the member know when you send your PM so they know they should not ship until they receive confirmation that you have shipped your item offered and then follow up with a PM of the confirmation number once your item is shipped. The member shipping should check the confirmation number online to make sure the item is shipped before sending their item. The person sending the item pays the shipping costs.

    When items are mailed, swapper needs to send a courtesy email or PM to the swappee to let them know that the item is on its way. All items must be shipped with tracking # and please email or PM that information to the swappee. Items other than hatching eggs should be sent within 2-3 days. Hatching eggs should be sent within a week. If you cannot meet this timeline keep in contact with your swappee so they are aware why you cant ship. Eggs need to be shipped Prioriity mail, however other items may be mailed at less expensive means providing you get a delivery confirmation number. In the event that an items is mailed but not received your confirmation number is your proof, if the confirmation number shows that the post office confirms receiving the item and the item is lost then the swap will be considered honored. If a swap item is mailed without a confirmation number and is not received then the person sending the item, must allow the person that did not receive their item a choice of something else and then send that item to them.

    Members must be in good standing with other established swap threads to be able to participate on the WYGS.


    Swap Helpers:
    I am fortunate enough to have plenty of folks who would like to help things run smoothly. As far as I know so far, they will mostly be helping with questions, rule enforcement/clarification, redirection to the chat thread if we get to be chatty cathys :)D) and other such things. If there is a problem between swap members (unfulfilled swaps, etc), please PM me. I will be confirming with these helpers to be sure that they still wish to help us out, then adding them to the list.

    Alright everyone. Just a quick introduction here. I have changed two rules from the original set of rules. I do believe that there were some rule changes from the old swap, but I'm in the process of searching for them and will be editing and updating as soon as I find them.

    Important changes...
    1. I have changed the week change over from Sunday 12 midnight Mountain time to Sunday, 12 midnight Eastern time (because I'm lazy like that, LOL). I'm fairly certain that this will not have much effect, it's just to make my life easier, since I'm in the Eastern time zone. This might make it nicer for others, as it will be slightly earlier than before. I don't foresee any problems with this.

    2. Members must be in good standing with other established swap threads, as well as the WYGS in order to continue participating on the WYGS. This prevents people from bouncing from swap to swap and cheating others out of swaps or causing problems. I'm hoping to nip it in the bud before our members get burned. If there's a problem on another swap, there's a good chance the problem might continue here.

    3. Please post a link to your swap page to help members using mobile devices. It's simple and easy to copy and paste the signature, but unfortunately, it's not as easy to switch from mobile to desktop just to search for the swap page. This will also help move your offer along, since some members cannot get the desktop version to work on their mobile devices, and thus cannot check your swap page.

    4. If I remember correctly, posts/threads cannot be edited after a period of time, so I will be making a "member page" to keep up with the rules and the wall of shame, so the edits can continue and hopefully keep confusion to a minimum.

    coahorse-
    Hi daze, could you do cuckoo maran chicks? Sorry I didn't understand what you meant by the duck eggs only thing. This is just a question, and I understand that the swap is paused for now. Thanks!

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]I can do cuckoo maran eggs, but right now I am not shipping chicks.[/FONT]

    Ok then. I don't have an incubator right now, as I am still looking for one to buy. But I am very interested in some cuckoo Marans. If you are shipping chicks, please let me know
