    Are you sure its not just the OP too lazy to take new photos?

    If not they should be reported to Craig's list. Makes me mad when people try and con people. Good spotting btw!!

    Very sure not same person - one is in NC from now and the backyard one is from NY from 2010. The current craigslist ad posts as if these are for sale __now - with SAME pict from 2010. My friend responded to the ad today and no one at address, which was CREEPY and we did a search on google for the picts advertised on craigslist and backyard pix from 2010 came right up!
    And they even go so far as to say they are crosses and post the supposed hen and rooster they are from! My friend drove more than an hour but guess it could have been worse than just resulting in a wasted day. Just don't understand why someone would do that! :(
    REALLY have to beware about craigslist ads, though I do not understand why someone would do that!
    Update! She deleted her post but possibly has more ads posted on Raleigh Craigslist - advertising silkies in Holly Springs - though this might not be the same person. I have a picture of the orig ad she posted with the picture she took from this board that she was representing as hers for sale, as I suspected she might delete it (as she should) once found out. At any rate, beware of "Mandy" or "Amanda", selling chicks and chickens in Holly Springs, NC! So sad that someone would do that and hopefully her intent was not more malicious than wasting someone's time! https://www.backyardchickens.com/g/i/6046724/default/sort/display_order/ https://www.backyardchickens.com/g/i/6046725/default/sort/display_order/
