    SWAP RULES FOR THIS THREAD:

    ***PLEASE WAIT UNTIL THE PERSON WHO CLAIMED YOUR OFFER HAS THEIR OFFER CLAIMED BEFORE SHIPMENT!***

    1.  Your first offer must be for purebred eggs.  Mixed colors can be considered pure. You may offer more than 1 type of purebred eggs and anything after the first offer can be mixed breed or colors.  Minimums still apply.

    2.  Easter eggers and olive eggers are not counted as a purebred fowl.

    3.  Minimum of 6 chicken, guinea, pheasant eggs, 4 duck eggs, 2 peafowl, ostrich, goose, emu, or rhea, and 12 for quail of any kind.  Eggs are to be no older than 4 days at time of shipping and must be dated with date they were laid.  Also try to identify your eggs in a way that can not be washed off.  We have had an issue in the past of people claiming eggs and then reshipping those same eggs to someone else once they received them.  They make egg stamps that you can purchase, though they are not required, they are a good idea if you can afford one.

    4.  Eggs must be available for shipment within 2 weeks.  NO EXCEPTIONS!  If you claim eggs please be ready for them as soon as the next day.  Do not ask to have your eggs held for a later date unlessthe person you claimed from says they can wait to send.  Of the reason the eggs end up on here is because they are extras and eggs are time sensitive so they need to ship ASAP!

    5.  Quote the offer you are claiming and then post MINE and directly below post your offer of your eggs.  Update your offer after 24hrs if it is not claimed by then.  If your offer is not claimed within 48hrs, then your offer and the previous posters offer becomes available and the new claimer can choose whichever of the 2 posts they desire to claim from.

    6.  Sender of the eggs pays all shipping costs and all eggs must be sent priority at minimum.  You can choose priority express   at your own discretion.  All shipments must include a tracking #.  Once the eggs are shipped, the sender must PM the tracking # to the claimer as proof of shipment.

    7.  Contact the person you claimed the eggs from immediately after claiming and posting your offer to set up shipping arrangements.

    8.  All eggs must be properly packed!  If you do not know how to pack eggs, get with one of us who moderates this thread and we will be happy to help teach you the proper ways.  Or you can check out this thread here! https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/738943/the-great-egg-shipping-experiment

    9.  You must be a active member of BYC in good standing.  3 months and 50 posts minimum to participate.



    10.  Side trades can be made but must be done through PM as to not confuse anyone.

    11.  You are permitted 5 swaps a week and each week starts over on Sunday at 12AM.

    I am your main contact for this swap thread.  If I for some reason have not answered you within a reasonable amount of time you may contact

    So sad I can't participate in this one with the 6 month requirement. I was enjoying the swap on another thread :(

    Quail offer doesn't meet minimum requirements. Can you do 12 or combine with another type of egg to make it qualify?

    I'm letting this one slide since we did some rule changes but they will be enforced from now on.
