    So far I only bought eggs off ebay. I had an eggbid account for about 2 years no and never bought. I know some sellers on eggbid are from ebay but I would love to know your experience with eggbid only sellers.

    Thank you

    Both egg selling forums require some caution. Checking references is a must if you are looking for real quality. I have seen blatant misrepresentations on both and I have seen very good breeders on both.

    I've bought off of both. I think in general (and this is only my opinion) ebay gets more traffic.

    I tend to see higher prices on ebay....but that might be because the buyer format is more user friendly.

    You log in at ebay, your page comes up and I find it easier to track what you are purchasing or bidding on, not to mention WATCHING. I hate not being able to watch an auction on eggbid.

    I know if there was a watch page like there is on ebay I would spend more $$$ so maybe it's not a good thing...lol.

    Other than that , always, always, always check feedback.
