At this point, I am so fed up with buying hatching eggs from anyone on here or Ebay. Now don't get me wrong, I've had some great experiences but the bad at this point are out weighing the good. For one, why is it when you ask a seller to mark a box "Call for Pickup - xxx-xxx-xxxx" some sellers just don't do it. I have a box now coming that the seller was told to mark it but apparently didn't. It's out for delivery. My post office knows me quite well. I've been there at least 3 times a month to pick up boxes of eggs and they know. Had eggs delivered Monday and same thing. Didn't mark it and my post carrier asked if it was eggs. They know me! I don't live in the city, more like at least 15 minutes out in a rural area. It's easier and safer for the eggs for me to pick them up on my way home from work. I've had boxes of eggs sitting on my steps in the hot sun when I get home from work, boxes that were suppose to be marked. I refuse to accept them. You as a seller have just taken my slightly good chance of hatching these eggs and shot it to heck. What do I hear from the sellers? Try incubating and see. What??? Do you know electricity costs? Why would I try to hatch bad eggs?? So I did with one batch. One chick. I wasted 21 days on one chick. And most sellers act like you are the scum of the earth asking for more eggs because they screwed up. Another issue I have is how sellers say "I won't be responsible for what the post office does." Okay no big deal but how is it the buyers fault what the post office does. Can't you learn to work with your buyers? If a box gets lost and the hatch is horrible, why not work with them. It isn't the buyers fault the PO lost the box. Yes, I'm having this issue too. I have one egg that even developed after 10 days. What did the seller say? What to see what happens with the others? What? You think they are going to catch up? If it isn't developing after 10 days I highly doubt it will start developing. Did the buyer offer to work something out? Heck no because apparently it's okay to let a customer suffer the loss. My good hard money wasted because of something that wasn't my fault. Which is my biggest issue with sellers. Their attitude. If it's your fault, fix it!!! Don't treat the buyer like they are absolutely wrong for asking you to fix it. It's just not right and very bad business. It doesn't mean the buyer is greed because they are asking you to fix what you did wrong. I work hard for my money and expect to get what I paid for. Yes, I understand the risk of hatching shipped eggs but I believe too many sellers use that as an excuse for having poor quality eggs period. I've had eggs shipped all the way from CA to MD and gotten over 75% hatch rate. I would buy from her again in a heart beat. Others, I've gotten the absolute poorest hatch rate and not in just one batch. If I get more then one batch of eggs from a seller and hatch rate is very low, I don't see how that is the PO's fault. And if an individual PMs you about your eggs or birds, have the courtesy to actually answer it back. It's just rude not too. Sorry for the rant but frankly it's just ridiculous how buyers are treated. Okay, I'm done.
