A few days ago I took a four hole rabbit cage and placed out front with birds for sale in it. We also placed a for sale sign on it. Now we are advertising on BYC, Arkansas Poultry (yahoo), Backyard meet-up and Craigs list. Yesterday I received a call from a man from Craigs list. When he showed up, I recognized him. The same man that last year griped about the price of sweet potatoes and that a bushel weighed 50# not 40#. I was selling 40# BOXES not 50# BUSHELS. Anyway, he was interested in our trio of Buckeye Bantams. Currently we are the only ones in Arkansas with Buckeye Bantams (Jen let Jacob have hers). The pullets are pet quality, but the cockerel is show quality. I priced the trio at $20. Feed is expensive. This man offered $15. No grandkids. No youth involved. He wanted them for himself. I still have the trio, along with two younger pullets of pet quality. I shared with him what the cockerel may be worth, if we hold him till the fall show season. Yet, he offers almost nothing. We paid $2.50 each for 10 Buff Cornish chicks. Lost 5. Raised them and fed them for 4 months. Sold them for $4 each as I decided I did not like them enough to keep them. Don't think we made anything off of them. The Buckeye Bantams are Jacob's 4H project. Why do folks want to steal from 4H members? Why offer a ridiculously low price? Where is the common courtesy and fairness? Obviously we did not sell him the Buckeyes. Had it been a 4Her...well we would have worked something out. Jen was most generous to my children in helping us get started back in poultry. This we MUST remember and help others. But this fellow was cheap. VERY CHEAP! He even tried to give us a small flock of production reds...,.that he found on Craigs list.... that were sick and had already lost several. Yea, I want a flock of sick/dead chickens! I explained we were NPIP and a closed flock. That we can only add from other NPIP flocks. Thankful we are NPIP! Why do people want to haggle over price? Do they go to Wal-Mart, Dollar General, Piggly Wiggly or the gas station and haggle? Yes, I will give you $1.98.9 a gallon for gas. Will you take $2 for that gallon of milk?
