RareBreedAuctions.com is dedicated to preserving America’s rare and heritage breeds of poultry and livestock. We believe that the best way to save these breeds is to create a market for these animals where buyers and sellers can meet and bargain in a fair and professional environment facilitated by state-of-the-art technology. RareBreedAuctions.com is committed to providing that opportunity to you, the buyer or seller of rare breeds.

Other auction sites created by livestock experts have failed the test of time due to a lack of technical proficiency and poor customer service. At RareBreedAuctions.com, we specialize in raising livestock, but we also make our living in developing and maintaining customer relationships through online communication.

We are committed to building a strong and ethical community that allows members to sell and bid with confidence. We pledge to be responsive, helpful and friendly to our members and guests, and we encourage you to tell us about your experiences so that we can continuously improve our service.

We welcome you to our community and look forward to meeting your needs.

Bid on birds & never paid. I offered to sell him the chicks at a higher shipping price because they would've been 2 weeks older but no response. Please DO NOT bid on birds if you do not have the money to buy NOW!!!

!!!!!!! *** SCAM ARTIST *** !!!!!!! Please Do Not buy from or sell to this person! If he bids on your auction I recommend deleting his bid and blocking this person from your auctions. He bought a Gold Laced Orpington Rooster from me and faked his death on arrival and sent me fake photos of another gold laced bird to try and get his money back and keep the bird I sent him. His email and user ID is on Ebay's Seller Black List as well..... I am going to copy and paste the email I sent to RBA Store Manager if you want to read exactly what happened... Hi RBA Manager, I wanted to report a clear scam artist here on your site that tried to fake receive a dead rooster with fake photo proof to get his money back on paypal. I have all the proof in the world if you need it. His name is Walter Boese. His email is grizlyadamsofmt@netzero.net He changed his story multiple times and is a scammer and I am hoping you can please take action with him on your auction site so nobody else has to deal with him. To start off, his email is on Ebays blocked member list if you google his email address. I sold him a Gold Laced Orpington Rooster on here recently for merely $13 plus shipping. I would not risk my reputation as a seller on your site for a $13 rooster... Many red flags started with his initial purchase and I would be happy to show you screenshots of his emails and text messages and photos he tried to claim as proof of the dead rooster with the rooster I sent him... To start off, the buyer did not want to send a phone number for shipping box. They claimed the post office knows to call him and did not need to send me the number. I told him to please send me any number he would like so I can write a number on the shipping box for pickup. He finally sent a number but it was not the same phone number he eventually called me (randomly at 1AM in the morning my time). He also did not have a shipping address on his paypal account and when I tried to print the shipping label it would not let me do so because it said no address on file and also buyer was not a verified paypal member and said there was no seller protection for his payment. The buyer claimed he received a dead rooster and instead of reaching out to me so I could refund his money with proof of the dead rooster, he immediately started a paypal claim with his payment. He eventually notified me of the dead rooster about a day or 2 later. When I asked for photos of the rooster, his first response was he takes all his buyers word for a dead bird and shouldn't have to send photo proof of the rooster...He was upset that he felt I needed proof of the dead rooster... He also stated that he is not able to email photos... He stated that he did not have his cell phone with him when he picked up his rooster but the He eventually says maybe he can text me photos. Finally the buyer decides to send me fake pictures of the "dead rooster". They took 2 days to send me photos and finally sent 2 zoomed in pics of a gold laced bird with a mutilated face and head, a small comb and blurry photo. My rooster I sent him has a gigantic comb. This bird was clearly not my bird I sent him but I was still very polite and I simply asked the buyer to send a picture of the entire rooster laid out on the ground with my shipping label in the same photo. That would be perfect proof for me and I would have no problem refunding back his money. The buyer decides to call me randomly at almost 1AM in the morning my time which was 2 or 3AM his time. I told him to simply send a photo of the entire dead rooster laid out on the ground with my shipping label in the photo next to it. He was very rude on the phone and upset I did not believe him. He also changed his story and said he took pictures at the post office of the dead rooster. I asked him with what camera because in your email you stated you did not have your cell phone with you. He then paused on the phone and said he had to go back to the post office to take photos????? The photos he sent me are not inside a post office! They are zoomed in a box very zoomed in and blurry photos. There would be no need to go back post office to take the photos he claimed he took. He agreed and said he would take a photo of what I asked in the morning when it was light out. Even though he could have simply used a flashlight or lights and send some snap shots on his cell phone to text me since he decides to call me at 1AM I'm sure he had time. After this conversation I never hear from him again. So now he lied about sending me a simple photo proof of what I requested to refund his money. It's a simple photo that I requested and even though he agreed to do on the phone conversation he failed to contact me again and left me a nasty review on RBA... If you google his email, grizlyadamsofmt@netzero.net you will find that he is on the blocked eBay Member Blacklist which is the blocked Buyer/Bidder List of eBay. His negative feedback on RBA also has similar story of a rooster he purchased. Also, He had purchased Gold Laced Orpingtons on here before on his previous feedbacks and that also tells me that he would have easy access to a dead orpington in his yard that died and he purchased my auction and took pictures of his gold laced bird zoomed in with a mutilated head and face and tried to make it look like mine but did a horrible job. It is clearly not my bird in the 2 photos he sent and all the evidence I have defends that proof. I haven't left him a review yet because I'm hoping you are going to block him from your site. I am reaching out to you because I am a good seller on your site and have been working hard to achieve consistent positive reviews and I do not deserve this review he left me because he is a clear liar. I also want you to know he is a scammer and hope you can keep him from doing this to sellers on your site in the future. Please let me know if you are willing to remove his feedback he left me. I do not deserve it and will show you any proof you need to justify my story of this scammer. I have all the emails and texts from him, as well as the photos he tried to claim of the dead rooster and the picture of my rooster in my yard that I actually sent him. Please let me know if there is anything you need from me. I am more than willing to help out with this issue. Thank you, Tina

Well I sold this person one of my biggest birds! I figured out shipping was gonna be more than i thought and i had to buy a bigger box for the rossters safety! The buyer had no intention of the roosters safety and didnt wanna pay the extra cost! I had no problem with that. I offered the buyer their money back and they lost nothing! It also was very hard to reach the buyer! I emailed them 4 or more times! They finally replyed and said that i had till 12:00 to return their money as requeted I returned it!Then they thought leaving a bad review would help.... well the mature thing would have been to talk to me and be mature but they did the complete oposit so I thought Id leave my comment here :) be ware this "buyer"

RBA Member Code of Conduct

Updated: May 28, 2015
This website is a service intended to benefit our country's livestock and the people who raise it. In order for this community to thrive and achieve our mission, its necessary that all registered members adhere to a Code of Conduct that ensures fair trade. By registering as a member you agree to abide by our Code of Conduct, and any violations of the Code of Conduct will result in being banned from this site and such other legal action as may be required. The Code of Conduct is as follows:

  1. A person may not create multiple accounts.
  2. A seller may not bid on his or her own auction and may not coordinate with family and friends to do so.
  3. A winning bid creates a legally binding contact, and winning bidders are required to pay the seller. If you have questions about an animal being auctioned the time to ask those questions is well before the close of the auction. Doubts, unanswered questions, second-guessing, an unanticipated or sudden change in personal circumstances, or buyer's remorse are not valid reasons for a winning bidder to refuse to pay after an auction closes.
  4. Read the text of the auction carefully before you bid. Once you bid your bid cannot be undone. Your bid is a legally binding offer to the seller, and if you are the high bidder your offer is automatically accepted and becomes a legally binding contract under which you are obligated to pay the seller.
  5. Sellers may not use other people's photos, breed descriptions, or trade names without their express written permission. Copyright violations are not allowed.
  6. Sellers must accurately describe the animal they are selling including the pedigree of the animal.
  7. When giving feedback a person must accurately describe the facts that support the feedback rating.
  8. In order to be valid, feedback must be posted by sellers within seven days after payment is due and for buyers within seven days after the birds or eggs are shipped.
  9. A person may not send profane or harassing messages about an auction.
  10. A seller advertising imported poultry must be prepared to provide a copy of the USDA import permit proving the legal importation of the poultry. Only legally imported poultry may be sold at auction.
  11. A seller or buyer may not use an auction or RBA-related tools to negotiate direct sales outside of an auction. This includes asking buyers to "gift" money via PayPal.
  12. A seller may not pre-sell hatching eggs or day-old chicks with a shipment date more than four weeks after the auction ends.
  13. This is a community. Be POLITE and courteous. If you are rude, you may be asked to leave.
  14. A seller will comply with all relevant government regulations including those related to the shipping of live birds and NPIP compliance.

Thank you for participating in our community. Happy selling and bidding! If you have questions, comments or concerns, please email the store manager.
