    I think your right...i wonder if the person doesn't realize it? Or if they are trying to get away with something.

    The individual has been reported. eBay should now pull the auction.

    Oh gosh! I wish they sold live chicks there! It would be so much fun shopping for new chooks online [​IMG] . People complain about everything these days dang it! :mad:

    I don't like that breed but I think i will save the email address to shop with him/her in the future just to protest this none sense.

    I think its stupid to not sell live birds. They can sell live fish and hatching eggs right? Maybe one day?

    Just reread the add, now that is why live animals should not be sold on ebay, is he really gonna put the chicks into a FLAT RATE box, and put them in the mail???????? Sorta scarey if you think about it.

    US $10.00

    Wow! Yeah no wonder ebay doesn't want to mess with that. I can't believe someone would consider shipping chicks that way. I don't think many would make it being in a box with no ventilation.

    I would wish good luck to those who would want to try to buy chicks from this seller, but I can't condone the neglectful killing of little chicks.
