    Title: Small blonde poodle for adoption
    Ad said: I love you mama, but she has to go.

    I'm with you Muggs. I like to write out what color eggs they lay, how big they get... full page ad. Maybe I should just start writting "Chickens" and nothing else.

    The thing that really urks me... I put 3-5 paragraphs about the breed on there, price, my location, ect. People STILL email me saying things like "Do you have any (breed not in ad here) for sale?" Did I say I did? Pretty sure I didn't. Or the ad be for a trio and I always mention it is for THE TRIO... "not breaking them up, sold as one trio" and I get emails of people "How much for the hens. I have a rooster"

    I stay polite, but on a bad day it's hard so I just ignore those... if you can't say nothing nice, don't say anything at all, right?

    At least they managed to spell chicken right. People seem to have a real problem with that out here.

    Quote:EXACTLY! I posted the sale of a few breeds back in Oct. I got emails for requests if I knew other people selling different breeds than what I had. I sent a letter politely saying no, but the whole while I wanted to scream...get off your but and do your own GOOGLE search! [​IMG]
