    Anyone here use eggbid? I am thinking of registering and buying some eggs, but not sure if there are the same quality here (or better) or what... Is there any significance to joining eggbid or should I just do my shopping here? thanks!

    Eggbid is going downhill fast. It has very, very little moderation.

    I use BYC and ebay. I also sell hatching eggs on ebay. I do also use eggbid, but I do agree what the other poster said.

    I use all three (byc, ebay and eggbid) as well. There are some good and bad sellers (and buyers) no matter where you go. That's why it's so important to read feedback and do your research before buying. I think it is more a matter of what you're looking for and where it is available.

    No problems with Eggbid but yes there is lack of mods in there and it is losing popularity. I think BYC and Ebay has a better success getting some eggs than Eggbid.

    I have to agree...it is going downhill fast. Things are posted wherever and whenever people want. No rhyme or reason. Categories have no meaning to the sellers. I emailed Eggbid about it, to no avail

    Do you think it will fold in the next couple of years?

    I have looked on ebay but haven't purchased eggs there yet. I don't know too much about eggbid at all.

    I have gotten several batches of eggs from folks on here, BYC. I have had a great experience with them so far. Great sellers/traders on here that I have delt with so far. I even have eggs developing....and hoping they hatch!!
