    My better 1/2 wants bantam sultans. I cant find ant breeders and I am wondering if they are just really hard to hatch? I dont really want to order from a hatchery

    Ok so I'm not sure if its getting insane here but another bidder and I are now surpassing $35 for 6 eggs. Is this a bit much? I really want these eggs but I'm not sure if $7 an egg is worth it. What did you pay for your eggs when the bidding was all said and done and what is the quality of the chicks and adults?

    Woww. I got lucky and won my bid for 0.99 cents. plus shipping. I think 35 dollars is crazy but it all depends on how much you want them. Also remember it's no guarentee with shipped eggs. Good luck

    Yeah. Well, at this point I am a bit unamused by the lack of communication from this seller! I won the eggs on 2/6 and paid for them on 2/9. I sent 2 direct emails and got zero replies to my inquiries. On the 12th I get an automatic. Email from ebay stating that the seller put in for a USPS label with an estimated delivery for 2/12?????? Huh? How is that possible?

    I will be surprised if these eggs show up, and intact, and hatch!

    Edited to add: today is the 15th....still no replies and no estimated delivery date of my expensive eggs! [​IMG]
