    Looking to buy Bielefelder given Omega Hills Farm canceled my order after nearly two weeks of no acknowledgement of my order. I suggested they should improve their communication with customers and they did not take the criticism well. I would recommend not placing an order with them as that is an indication they do not care about their customers.

    I noticed a listing on eBay today.
    Very tempting but I'm overpopulated.

    Wow! I'm surprised to hear that. I received two shipments from Omega Hills Farm and they were in CONSTANT communication with me, both email and phone. I was VERY pleased with the service I received from them. The first shipment had very rough handling from USPS and in the second shipment, they gave me an additional 5 eggs to make up for it. We got Bielefelders and Blue Isbars.

    Also bought some Bielefelders on eBay, but am waiting on that hatch - all have detached air cells at this point, but some may reverse by day 14.

    Hope you are able to find some. Anyone close to you so you wouldn't have to go through shipping? That's always a gamble.

    Ebay has a load of listings. I got some there. Carefully scrutinize each seller by location and feedback and how long they have been doing this. The prices are all over the chart. and be sure to take note on shipping charges... that's a sneaky way to make extra money on the sale.
    This breed is becoming more common and the price has dropped dramatically since last year. Good luck

    @pinerchicken I hear you. Tough to find reputable breeders who are meticulous about shipping and even then, there are problems with the USPS. Good luck!

    Good luck. I get very few responses from BYC. You may want to search FB for a Bielefelder group. I belong to a couple. You may also look for local or regional chicken/livestock groups. I get mine from ebay because I can get what I want when I want it and shop for the best value. Shipped eggs are very risky, though. USPS is NOT kind to them.
