    I really hate the people craigslist attracts [​IMG]

    Some dude emails me telling me he is looking for a pet chicken and he sees I have a buff orpington pullet available. I say yea she is still available but I ask that you have other chickens as they sould not be alone. I only mentioned this because he says he is looking for a pet chicken and I am selling her alone. He writes back and says not a prob I have 3 silkies, I was just looking for somthing that would get along with them.

    He goes on and sends me 5 emails right after one another asking me what color she is, does she get along with other chickens, why am I rehoming her blah blah blah all of which I answered polietly and promptly.

    He then sends me an email telling me Im a strange person, that I am snippy, he dosnt intend on buying my birds and tells me that its really weird that I go by an alias [​IMG] Guess he didnt like the fact that I sign and go by my middle name Danielle rather then my real first name, Mary that comes up with my email address when I send an email.

    I like the ads that say something like this, in an urban area:

    Looking for THESE SPECIFIC chickens. Aracauna (spelled wrong), Lavendar Orpingtons, Silver-Laced Wyandottes, etc, etc. I ONLY want laying hens. 10 months old to 12 months old ONLY. They must lay at least 6 eggs a week each. Also, they should be reasonably priced around $5 or so....

    I picked up some free silkies off of CL a couple of weeks ago...

    We emailed each other a few times before I went to pick them up...

    I asked the guy for his address so I could look up the directions to his house and he said no call me. So I called and he made me talk to his wife.. I got the directions drove the 60 miles to pick them up and the guy kept calling me Eric...weird. My name is Erin---obviously not an Eric. Anywho, when I got home I happened to check my email and the guy had emailed me back and said " I am sorry I had a guy come and pick the chickens up this morning" Huh?? One- DUH I picked them up, Two I am not a guy, and Three You don't deserve to have chickens!!
