PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PARTICIPATING! IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE ASK! 1.An egg swap for purebred chicken eggs only (EEs will not count as purebred). Mixed colors not allowed unless the resultant chicks are of breed acceptable colors. Swappers must have been members of BYC for at least 60 days. 2. An initial offering of 6 eggs will be made. Any member can accept and replace the offer with 6 purebreds of their own. You are responsible for the cost of shipping your own eggs. Any member can only offer a breed once in a weeks time. 3. A member can take and replace a swap with as many different breeds as they have, in a weeks time. If you have one breed to offer, you can make one swap; if you have 3 to offer, you can make 3 swaps. If offering a combination of different breeds, it will be considered a single swap, and can only be made once in a weeks time. 4. Purebreds only. Please offer pictures of your birds, if they arent posted somewhere on the site already. Pictures of the actual eggs being sent, or those from the actual birds laying these eggs, would be good especially for colored egg breeds. You can't expect people to want to swap eggs without seeing what they are swapping for. Please do not offer mixed colors, unless the resulting offspring are considered standard for the breed. Please make arrangements to ship eggs within a week or two of the swap, unless different arrangements are made with your swap partner. Shipping must be done via USPS Priority Mail, or if you prefer a similar service with another carrier. 5. The week will end Sunday evening at midnight. 6. There is no limit on the time that 6 eggs can be offered. We have over 22000 members. Its good to give people time to see what is being offered. I dont see any problem in an offering waiting for 2 or 3 days, or even more. Its not about speed. 7. This thread will not go fast!! Its more about allowing more people to participate. 8. Please keep chatter to a minimum. A little bit is fine; just use some common sense on this. If its not about the swap, it probably belongs in a PM. 9. Anyone not upholding their end of the swap agreement, either by sending eggs, or by sending shipping cost if they couldnt fulfill their swap for whatever reason, will not be allowed to participate further. Anyone with bad feedback in the Feedback forum will not be allowed to participate until they have cleared up their prior feedback, either by paying for their auctions they didnt pay for, or by sending eggs they havent sent. 10. Please post feedback in the Feedback forum. Its a great resource, but it won't work unless we all participate.
