I am wondering if I am alone in this situation. I have sold birds and eggs on the net for several years, but can still not get over how inconsiderate some chicken people are. I cannot count the number of times I have sat at home all day waiting for buyers to show up and get a no show. No phone call, e-mail or anything. My stock are free ranged, so this means that I have had to catch, separate, and pen the supposed sale birds. I attempt to raise birds that seem to be in demand, that are healthy and competitively priced. I advertise my stock as pet quality, although some are indeed better than pet quality. I have birds that I am giving away or asking maybe $1. per bird and had people critique them like I was asking $20 per bird. And then there are the endless e-mails and phone calls etc. only to have a no show who called when they were leaving home but never arrived. On a more positive note, I have sold birds to some very nice people who often repeat buy and let me know how their birds are doing. I was just wondering if some of you experience similar situations?
