    I won an auction for eggs on the 12th. I emailed asking a few questions before I paid with paypal on the 15th (didn't get a response until then). Payment was accepted on the 15th, I gave my address to mail to, I'm still waiting on my eggs. NO communication as to when they were shipped or if they've even been shipped. I have sent 3 emails asking to be told a shipping or estimated shipping date. What do I do now? Wait??

    Send another email telling them you need an answer as to when your eggs either were mailed or when they will be mailed then give them a time period to respond. Tell them if you do not hear from them you will file with paypal for refund.

    This is a little harsh but hopefully will get their attention.

    Agree with corancher. And ask how they are being shipped. If it is to a PO box, be sure and let the employees know you are waiting for fertile eggs, give them your phone number and get the phone number for them so you can check though out the waiting period.

    I ordered fertile eggs a couple of years ago from Ebay but did not experience the problems you are reporting. Unfortunately for me, none of the eggs hatched but my inexperience was most likely the reason.

    Good luck.
