    I was wondering who would be interested in participating in a thread about swapping eggs. How it would work would be as follows:

    The original poster would say he/she has eggs to offer- can be any amount, any type of domesticated poultry. Anyone who wants them can have them, provided that they have something to offer up on the thread. Side trades are welcome as well, but the thread must continue swapping eggs.

    For example I would say:

    I have 6 speckled sussex eggs to offer.

    Suzy would say:

    I accept the speckled sussex eggs and offer 6 rhode island red eggs.

    Bill would say:

    I accept the rhode island red eggs and offer 12 ameraucana eggs.


    Let me know what everyone thinks.

    Also, I know it is getting close to the heat of the summer and I want to get everyone's opinion on whether to do this now or start in the fall when the temps are down and it is easier to ship eggs.

    Sounds good! The only provision I would make is the "buyer" has to pay shipping for the eggs.
