    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 promised hubby that I'd take a break from hatching. (My incubators have been on literally since April 2009 without a break except for cleaning and then turned right back on.) So I'm out this month. I think I'm going to have withdrawals. LOL

    Don't tempt me Betsy! LOL I still have time to get in on this. He didn't cut me off, he asked me very nicely if we could please take a break from hatching. He's been asking me and asking me and asking me for months. I figured that I'd give in .....for a month. Especially since he's being so nice and is going to buy me my cabinet incubator. LOL
