As a seller myself I would guarantee fertility, but if I have something stated before a purchase is made I also expect the buyer to have read and understood the terms


I understand that but she did project the 90% and like i said, i don't want anything for free but i would expect to get near 50% at a minimum. How did she get 90% and then i got 30% ? Just doesn't seem like good business to me and she is supposed to be a reputable breeder. I'm thinkin if the fluffy butt is getting in the way they would trim the muff to get the fertility they need. Oh well not much i can do but give a bad review.

Fertility running about 90% but can't guarantee fertility or hatch rate. Some of the eggs were already 5-6 days old so when i got them i left them sit overnight then stuck them in my bator. Now here it is day 14 and i have 5 of the 18 that are not absolutely clear. Well that's nowhere near 90% so i contact seller and i get " well i'm sorry ur having problems but i stated i don't guarantee fertility". Then i get " these orpingtons are so hard to breed because they are so fluffy". Really?! So i sent another message, I understand that but surely you can make an exception due to the drastic reduction of fertility compared to what you were projecting"? So far no answer. I'm not looking for free anything but i think fair is fair, at least a 50% viability i could live with but 30+%. Ok so what would you do ?


Oh wait ! I got another message ! "your right, that is a big drop. Tell you what i'll do i have 12 jubilee eggs (mine were ALL BBS) that i can let you have for $85 instead of the $125 i've been asking". I've been watching the posts where she's got these listed and she can't get them sold. So she wants to sell them to me ? OMG

I would honestly stay away from anyone that won't guarantee fertility. That being said, they should make it right. Not try to sell you eggs no one else will buy. I don't know of a single person I've dealt with that wouldn't send more eggs if something went wrong on their end.

OMG, I'm brooding 20 right now (on their way outside soon, as soon as I get their growout tractor coops done). And I have another 20 coming plus 8 I'm hatching. I'm already overwhelmed - I don't see how you guys brood so many!!!!!! :ep

She even admits that is a big drop and she wants to make up for it by selling me more eggs. Crazy crazy people.
