I have been on someone's waiting lists for many months. I periodically check in, and hear back that the eggs aren't laying, or I am next on the list or the eggs aren't fertile, or a storm hit, or something. Last week the breeder finally emailed me that my eggs would be mailed Wednesday of this week. I sent a paypal immediately. Wednesday rolls around and there finally appears an email at the end of the day. It says they will have to send more of one breed than another for my order. Only problem is I only ordered one kind. So I email back that I have been waiting for 3 months for this one breed. I have the trail of emails, as late as last week, discussing the particulars. They email back they don't have enough and will have to delay shipping. Now I have not heard anything. I have this sense that I keep getting bumped and they are shipping to others. I had this happen once before and learned the person had shipped eggs to a friend of mine, even though I had been on the list before. The breeder had told me over and over that she hadn't sent eggs since July. I called the breeder on it and she admitted she lied. So I think it is happening again. I am getting paranoid. I try to be polite and pleasant in all my dealings with everyone. Do I have bad breath? Is it just me? Or has this happened to anyone else? edit to add: PS. I don't want anyone to use names to bash anyone. I just wanted a general sense of people's experiences with buying eggs. I have had some GREAT breeders, and I have noted that on the breeders thread. So if you do reply, please don't use anyone's name. I would be happy to recieve emails if anyone wants to commiserate privately. edited again to change the word 'some' to 'someone's'
