    Seriously, it is the first thing I check when I get on BYC. I scan the auctions for eggs I might want. I even check it in the middle of the night on my iphone. lol!
    I set my alarm for 4:30am to bid on some eggs I wanted this sunday morning! I have two different batches of eggs in my incubator, eggs that are being sent to me tomorrow and what am I doing now?? Scanning the egg auctions! [​IMG] Help I am addicted!!!

    I won't tell if you won't tell. Did you see the crazy 24 hour auction under chicken stocks? I got so I had eggs coming almost every day. I can't build coops fast enough. Yeah, I am chicken crazy and I love it!

    Yes, though sometimes they have a buy it now option. Prices seem better there too. I list some of my eggs there sometimes. You just find an offer you want, then post " I would like to offer $x for option one or you can name the breed you want and the seller. Check it out.

    [​IMG] I love the crazy 24 hour thread!! For a couple of months, I was a total addict. Checking for new posts every hour or 2. I won some great deals and hatched beautiful birds.... but am paying for it now!! Both coops are full. There are brooders and pens covering my back porch. 2 adorablel Ameraucana chicks are watching me right now from a cage on my desk. I have rehomed 7 in the past week and still have too many chickens!! This month I have been out in the blazing sun almost every day working on 2 new coops. When the coops are finished everyone should have plenty of coop space, IF I CAN STAY AWAY FROM THE EGG AUCTIONS!!

    Of course they are beautiful and I love every one of them.
