    I figure since Siz has been down, someone needs to step up & start this month's swap.

    The Rules
    This swap is not endorsed by BYC (owner, website, staff, etc.). The BYC Staff is not responsible and will not mediate if something goes "wrong" or a deal goes "bad". If you choose to participate in a swap, it is best to know who you are swapping with and not to swap more than you can afford to lose.
    The BYC Staff is sensitive because some past swaps have not worked out. We want our members to feel comfortable having fun with these and other social interactions, but please keep in mind that there were issues with some organizers and swappers not following through on their commitments in the past.
    So big rule #1 If you have mutts you will probably only get mutts
    #2 You can NOT pick a certain breeds
    #3 Cutoff for swap entry is June 8th, midnight.
    #4 the eggs have to be in the mail 2-3 days before the 30th
    #5 Everyone will be required to send 6 egg (you're welcome to send more)

    I will reply to e-mails to let you know I received it. Write again if you don't hear from me w/in 24 hrs.

    Send an email to with the following information:

    BYC Name
    Real Name
    Phone #

    Please choose from the following categories:

    Large Fowl Pure
    Large Fowl Mix
    Bantam Pure
    Bantam Mix
    *Only available as a "want" selection.

    Do not post what you want or have on this thread. To be entered in this swap, please post that you want to enter this months swap, and send an email with the listed information. Thanks!

    *****If something happens and you can not get your eggs out on time please contact me I will pass along the info Thanks!!*****

    Ok, I haven't even gotten through all my replies yet but this is a BIG rule that is already being disregarded....
    #2 You can NOT pick a certain breeds
    So I will *try* but now I understand why everyone hasn't been happy in the past. I may contact you after the 15th to say we don't have what you want...

    [​IMG] try anything once as long as it doesn't kill me or land me in jail!!!!
  10. Is there a way to let us know before hand? I don't want to have to wait until the 15th only to find out that what I want isn't available...I can only have certain breeds and I have only one thing to trade since my flock was destroyed....

    Or is there a way to make it possible for us just to do a swap where we know what breeds we're getting & who our partners are?
