    A lady on craigslist in Riverview was supposed to sell me a Salmon Faverolle hen. 5 days ago she said in a email "I will call you tomorrow so we can make an appoinment." I feel that she blew me off. I emailed her again!!!! And I told her:

    I am not trying to be mean but I have been waiting and waiting for a phone or email for days now. I need to hear from you soon in the next week or I will turn around and go to somebody else. Your birds look great and would like to get one if you would please contact me.
    Thank you,
    Maxx

    Here is her ad. If you know her please let me know so I can contact her. Her email address is [email protected]
    and in her emails she said her name was Tam.

    Maybe something came up that prevented her from getting back to you. I would try to give her the benefit of the doubt and just email a gentle reminder.

    I guess that is possible.

    Do you have a friend or family member who could try to email her and see what response they get?

    I guess I could try that. I am going to ask my dad right now.

    I just asked my mom and Dad and they said to give her the benifit of the doubt. Which I now agree with.

    Could have easily lost your number, miswrote it, or even dialed it wrong. I'd give another email with your # again just in case.

    If you have her phone number, try giving her a call-- it's just possible that she lost yours.

    Otherwise, I thought your email was polite but direct and the ball's in her court. If a week goes by and she doesn't contact you, then go to someone else. You gave her fair warning.

    I just sent her a email apologizing about my email. But I still think I said what I had to.
