    There are some rule changes this month. Please READ the rules.

    This is the October Online Hatching Egg Swap.

    This is not a mystery swap anymore.

    Sign ups are open until 10 October2012 at 12:00 noon CDT.

    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. You must be 18 to participate.



    The rules

    So big rule #1 If you have mixed you will probably only get mixed
    #2 You can NOT pick a certain breed.
    #3 All swappers must be signed up by NOON on 10 October 2012
    #4 The eggs have to be in the mail on or before 29 October 2012
    a. If you are unable to send your eggs on time, you must contact me, or you will be banned from future swaps!
    #5 YOU MUST ACQUIRE A DELIVERY CONFIRMATION NUMBER (DC#), AND PM IT TO ME and your swap partner WHEN YOU SEND YOUR EGGS
    #6 Everyone will be required to send at least 6 eggs except for those sending goose, turkey, peafowl, or Big Swap the min for these is 4 and the Big Swap is 12. NEW If sending Quail, the minimum is 12. You're welcome to send more. Please try to send the cleanest eggs possible.
    #7 Please package the eggs carefully. Individually bubble wrapped and secured so they have the best chance of surviving the trip. Please be sure to use enough tape on the wrap.
    #8 Due to previous problems, only active members of the BYC community are eligible to participate at my discretion. If you have been a member less than THREE months, you may only participate 2 times (previous swappers are grandfathered in)
    #9 If you fail to fulfill your obligations on this or any other swap, you will be unable to participate in future swaps
    # 10 NO PM Enteries anymore
    #11 YOU MAY PARTICIPATE UP TO 4 TIMES THIS MONTH - I will be using the link at the bottom of this post as your entry. Fill the form out each time you plan on participating. Post to this thread with the number of times you will participate.
    #12 MIXED COLOR PARENTS ARE TO BE CONSIDERED CROSS BREEDS. IF IN QUESTION PM ME.
    ex. you have Black Ameraucana and Wheaton Ameraucanas in one pen, then the offspring are to be considered crosses. If you have a Blue/Black/Splash pen, these eggs are considered PURE
    EE/OE will be in the project category. If you chose this, please indicate in the note section of the form what your project is.
    With the SQ options, if I find out that you have a mixed color pen that does not produce APA accepted colors (including leakage), you will NOT be allowed to receive SQ eggs in the future.


    #13 DO NOT POST WHAT YOU HAVE OR WHAT YOU WANT ON THIS THREAD
    #14 Post here when you receive your eggs.
    #15 If more than 1 egg is smashed (not cracked, but smashed and cannot be sealed) due to poor packing, you will not be able to participate in future swaps unless you resend eggs that are received unbroken.

    If you want to participate but you do not have eggs, there are several of us that will sell eggs to you and ship them to your partner. Some even offer discounts for this option.

    ok i'm back... for this month maybe.

    i'm out of work for the next 6 weeks because of surgery scheduled for monday (carpal tunnel), so might as well have something to plan for. [​IMG]

    a quick question on the "pure" though... i have a pen of SQ black bantam cochins that are split for lavender/self blue. they will produce either black or self blue chicks, that should have sq type. it is not a color cross and tho self blue isn't a recognized color variety, it will breed true. so would that be considered a sq, pure or mixed? or both pure/sq?

    I'm in one time. Some birds are slowing down while some are just coming out of molt so should be laying soon.
