    I am in Corpus Christi and I have 7 that need new homes, I do not know sexes though. I am more than willing to meet half way if needed, but it would need to be on a Mon. Wed. or Thurs. I would even consider shipping if the cost is under 20.00.

    it's pretty much impossible.. this guy's feedback on eBay was 100%
    he claimed that "everyone just raves about my packing"... [​IMG] (that can be taken several ways)

    When I pointed out to him that the eggs arrived broken and cracked..and that the ones that were "intact" were probably scrambled he informed me that he has great hatch rates. then pointed out to me that he knows the postal service drops boxes from heights of 6 feet.. so when I asked him that since he knew it WHY not put padding UNDER the eggs and not have them resting on a bare cardboard box.. his response was to give me a partial refund (which I hadn't even asked for). Then informed me that his auction states that he has no control over the postal service.. so I went back and reread his auction.. there was no mention whatsoever about postal service handling [​IMG]


    My best guess is that when he has someone complain he gives them a refund to shut them up..

    At least I got one bird.. the rest of the eggs never developed or were so damaged that I tossed them (broken and leaking)
    Air cells were also VERY big.. which tells me he also send old eggs..

    In all I'm surprised that I got one chick to hatch out.. (though I was hoping for black and not blue)

    I get what you're saying. It really frustrates me that people are afraid to put honest feedback. BUT since the feed back ststem works both ways, if you give them an honest but bad review they can slam you for it. Plus, if you are hoping to actually get something, like replacement eggs (after you pay the shipping for them, again) you don't want to tick them off. That's one of the perks of BYC, as a "Community" we communicate info - good and bad- amongst ourselves.

    Welcome Daniel. Several people on here have put free pallets to good use on some pretty cool and functional coops. All it takes is a little imagination.

    [​IMG] Last night around 11:30 I heard chicken noises, went out & 3 AG hens & the roo that roost in our plum tree were all on the ground in the dark, I managed to catch the 3 hens & put them in a coop, didn't know until this morning that whatever tried to get them had broken a big branch on the plum tree + the 4" of rain didn't help either :(

    Yes, I know what you mean! I have been searching high and low for heritage quality SLW...but none out here. I did find some amazing heritage quality White Wyondottes, out in Spring Branch, TX....Rebecca Creek Farm.
    I checked out the SLWs out in Seguin....and yeah....hatchery stuff.
