    I have been looking for a polish roo for about a week and I contacted this lady who has WC black polish in smooth and frizzle for $25, a WC blue polish for $25 and a frizzle WC cuckoo polish for $50. And she wants $60 for shippinf I'm interested in the cuckoo, do you think $110 is too much? [​IMG]

    How's the quality on them? Did they show you pics of the bird?

    If you are seriously interested in any of them I can take some.
    Though I would prefer not to take pics....they are all very nice, I wouldn't be offering them for sale if they were not correct and worthwhile birds. No crooked beaks, nice full crests, correct color.
    Let me know which ones you are interested in ASAP as I have a sale on Friday and Saturday.

    Best, Kathy


    I wonder why she would prefer to not show me pictures [​IMG]

    Yeah, that sounds pretty suspicious to me. I'd just tell her that if you're going to be spending that much on a bird, you would at least like to know what you're getting. Personally, I wouldn't take the birds without a pic.

    Just out of curiousity, would her email happen to be [email protected]?

    With someone like that, I not only want pics, but I want to touch it and smell it too.

    I would be very wary of someone who won't even bother taking a pic of what she is selling.

    I would think the only reason to "prefer" not to take a pic is that she doesn't want you to see them. I'd wait. That sounds awfully suspisious.
