    I bought eggs from these people at a pretty high cost and after several tries I hatched some chicks. I was excited to think I had these rare Denizli Longcrowers and they grew up and I posted a picture of them on ultimatefowl and I got totally laughed at. They are Egyptian Fayoumis and NOT denizli at all. I looked up Egyptians and that's exactly what they look like from chicks to grown adults. Now the person is listing them on EBay again this year but when I try to contact them it says they cannot be contacted. It makes me mad that someone else is going to be had by buying eggs thinking they are getting one thing and getting a breed you can buy at a hatchery.

    In case you are unaware there is a place where you can go and file a report. I know that won't help w/ your situation but at least you can warn other people. If they do there homework. The website is called ripoffreport.com. There might be other websites where you can report this if there are I don't know them though.

    Did you file a fraud complaint with ebay?

    The seller likely blocked you, so there is no way you can communicate with them to voice your displeasure. Very dastardly and disappointing.
