    5 days ago I placed a bid for 20+ A&M eggs on Eggbid. This is in addition to the 19 eggs I already have.

    The auction ended today, and I was actually thinking to myself, "Do I really NEED that extra bunch of eggs to worry over?" So when I got outbid this morning, I was sort of relieved.

    Then my competitive side came out with 45 minutes left to go. I bid my max and won. No, I don't really NEED them, but I DESPISE being outbid. Especially when I have the only bid for days on end, and at the last minute someone jumps in and tries to "steal" what is clearly mine. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    My addiction is coming along nicely, thank you very much. But I am staying away from auctions from now on.

    I'm going to avoid the wrath of dh by pointing out that my first 19 were all from the same breeder-- gotta have different bloodlines, right? [​IMG]

    I blame BYC completely. I had no interest in quail until I saw the post about processing them. I thought, "Hmmm. If that gal could do it, then I could too. No more buying cornish hens at the store. Yes, I believe I will." So here we are.

    The best part is, our city doesn't consider quail to be poultry. And as long as they aren't a native species, I can have as many as I want with no permit. I always look for the loopholes in the law. LOL

    Well then I should be thanking you. I was looking for a new hobby anyway. Somehow stamp collecting doesn't have the appeal of baby quail. [​IMG]
