    I thought we might try out a Poultry book/magazine swap
    It would have rules like the 'The BYC Crazy Egg Chain':
    __

    Person -A- offers a book or magazine that they no longer want.
    Person -B- likes what is offered and says "I'll take that and in turn offer..."
    Person -C- likes that and offers some book/magazine they have

    To qualify for accepting an offer, you need to post what you are offering in return in the same post.

    When each trade is posted, please PM or email the person who offered the previous item and work out the shipping arrangements.

    The person receiving the book/magazine will pay no shipping because the person who sends it will have received their book/magazine without paying shipping as well. This will keep the thread moving along without a lot of complications.

    I think it would be nice to offer specifically poultry books/magazines whenever possible, but
    generic farm book/magazines will be accepted.

    Please state the condition of an item when you list it.

    Please limit all shipping related business to PM's and emails.

    If a book/magazine is not claimed in 24 hours, I ask that the person who listed it would list a different book/magazine.

    Thanks everyone for your participation! This is not so much about how fast it can move as it is about trading books and making friends.

    This should prove to be a lot of fun! We can now all be related through our reading!

    If you have comments or suggestions about the thread along the way, feel free to PM or email me.

    Let's get this started!

    This may clarify better what is going to happen :

    I offer book "A", you realize you always wanted to read that book ([​IMG]), so you claim it and offer book "B". Then I ship book "A" to you, and I even pay for the shipping; now my part of the deal is over (unless I wanted to jump in again!). Now, another person sees that you are offering book "B", and they have been looking for that book, so they take it and list book "C". You ship book "B" to the other person, and pay for shipping; now your part of the deal is over (unless you want to jump in again!).
    And so on.....

    Also please quote the current offer in all conversation posts. Like:

    The problem with this idea is that I can't bear to part with any of my chicken-related literature...

    I actually got the idea for this swap because another person had asked for certain poultry books, I stated that I had one of them but I didn't really want to get rid of it (even though I should have it memorized by now!!), he said he would trade me another certain poultry book for it, his book was one I had been dying to get, the trade went through, and now everybody is happy [​IMG]

    Ok, then i offer the soft-covered book called Show me! It's a guide on how to find, raise and train a show dog, its in good condition, and will be shipped via media mail.
    Or, i can offer a hard cover book called-swine production, the title is pretty self-explanitory
