    Ok, to kick this off, let me explain how it works:

    Person A offers (fertile) eggs. We would like to keep a minimum of 6, but if you would like to offer more that would be fine too. Person B likes what is offered and says "I'll take those and in turn offer..." Person C likes those and offers some of their eggs.

    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 eggs and work out the shipping arrangements. We will be starting another thread for pics of eggs and hatches, etc.

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

    All types of poultry are welcome in the swap. Eggs that are offered need to be pure.

    Side trades are welcome, but be sure everyone is clear what you are doing to avoid confusion.

    Please offer eggs that you will have available to ship withing two weeks of offering. This will help keep things straight on the thread and allow more people the opportunity to participate.

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

    If you offer shipping only deals, please start your own thread in the buy/sell/trade section. This will also help eliminate some of the confusion.

    If people will PM me when they start receiving their eggs, we will start a new thread so everyone can discuss how their eggs arrived, progress in incubation, hatching, etc. I will link it to this thread.

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

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

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

    Let's get this party started!

    Marlin, you know I WILL have more. Just let me know when you want them.

    Perfectly Polish- I could fit the puppy in but the post office employees may wonder about the yipping coming from the box of fertile eggs.
