    Ok, I went out and bought a pair of Cameo Pieds, I asked if I could get a better deal if I bought 4. Guy said no, I said ok I'll just take the pair. Get home and the guy e-mails me and says he should have offered me a deal if I bought more... hunnnn? [​IMG] I asked that. Well he says I can have 3 for the price of 2, I say great and tell him which ones I want. He said he would hold them, since I didn't want to run down there on X-mas day, so I'd get them Sat. I later look on Eggbid and they are posted on there. I get the feeling if I don't get them he'll sell them anyway, so i e-mail him back and say I'll get there early on Friday. Agreed. Next morning I e-mail him and say i'm on the way, then 1/2 way (about 35 min into the drive) he calls and said the one I wanted was sold. WHAT! [​IMG] I tell him I saw it on Eggbid after i e-mailed him and we agreed and their was no bids on it and to tell the other person sorry, plus i'm already almost there. Plus I just bought birds from him and he's the one who asked me if I wanted more.... UGH. [​IMG] So I go and pick up birds, a pair of Silver pieds and a unknown color that he had posted as a rare color(even though he said he didn't know what color it was to me). He put them in the carrier so I didn't touch them. i get home and unload them, and the silverpied hen can't even stand. She is so skinny she is on deaths door. [​IMG] I call him and he says to worm her again, that he just did 2 weeks ago, and he didn't know she was sick. He said if she died he'd replace her. Well she only lasted a few hours and then died, my beautiful X-mas gift - dead and now I have a male with no hen. So I e-mail him the pics of her dead and how much my hand fits over her keel bone. I tell him I'd like the BSSP he has for sale on Eggbid to replace her ( it had no bids) he said she was sold....???? really, it has no bids, plus he keeps selling them even though I told him this one just died. He says to pick from 3 other type of hens. i didn't want any of those, I needed a hen for the male. Well he just wanted to refund my money, and I was still ticked off at him for trying to sell the ones he had already promised to me. I asked for pics of those left, he was rude about it, although I was not so plesant by this point. Then When i asked about one- It's sold, he said. UGH !!! I fought with him, which didn't end nicely and he is suppose to send me a refund for the dead hen. He didn't understand why I was so upset....................................... i will never buy a bird from him ever again. [​IMG]

    Is there someone you can report him to, on eggbid or in his area? He should not be doing business with anyone. Sounds like he shouldn't even have animals. Sorry for your bad experience, but maybe you can do something to help the others. I'm sure it's not just you he was messing with. Boy, that really sucks.

    Quote:yep ,Although he charged that for pick up ones also. he's the one that got kicked off last time I hear. I'm biting my tongue until he sends me my money..... then, well.....

    He kept saying there is nothing I could do to him cause he makes over $100,000 a year or such........... and his point is?

    He states he is selling out, but would not replace my dead hen with one of his yard "breeders", so I know he is just selling out of "this" stock. Now that i think of it I don't even remember seeing a full food dish anywhere in their pen.....

    I saw that too, and said, well, the price he's got on them just has the shipping added to the bird price. He e-mailed me some pics, but that was the end of it. Glad I didnt get them now, hate you got messed up with it. I'd make him take them all back for fear of disease if it were mine. Should have come off the price too if they were picked up! Cause shipping was just prefigured into the bid price....
    Sorry girl, good luck with all your other ones
