We set up a 30 RAOK tank for my 88yr friend, her son does the week to week water changes and somehow did not remember the conversation about Brig's snail egg clutches. We have no less that 100, I fished out 50+ yesterday.

I need to find homes for these ASAP I have never shipped anything!! No heat pack or breathing bags. They are golden yellow with a chocolate center. To make matters worse my long awaited purple cross of Brigs hatched this AM to I am totally out of ability to deal with more babies.
I will need help with calculating shipping costs and packaging. I want them to go to good homes. You will need to pay shipping and any incidents that are incurred with shipping. I would think that is minor!!! They are about the size of a small pea. They would have to go to areas where cold is not an issue.

Not any more as of 1-1-09 USDA amended that policy. Cannas need permit. Brig's are no longer permitted.
This is something that was long overdue.
Thanks if you want some Brig's please let me know...

Don't worry, brig snails will only eat dying or rotten plants, certain other apple snails will eat healthy plants, but not brigs

I have ordered & received all the shipping & packing materials.
Just one little problem, I have injured a Disk in my back. I am not real mobile. As the saying goes "I am flat on my back"
Realistically there is no way to attempt a mail out for Monday. Will just have to see how next week goes.
Thank You all for understanding.

Just let me know when you want me to send for the shipping. I hope your back feels better, from one back pain to another. :yield:

Ok I am up and out and about as they say a little. Went to a gallery night with some here on APC toward the end was about ready to scream.... I think it was the standing on concrete. But overall I am felling a lot better.
I am preparing to send out a few packages this week. Still have to carry them!!!
The snails are getting so big about the size of a large pea to up to nickel size.
Shipping should run priority mail 7x7x6, heat packs are 72 hrs 2.00.
Thank You for your patience.
Karen
Can also throw in some Ramshorns if needed. Just give me a count.
