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.

Paid $200 + $35 shipping for 8 Ayam Cemani Chickens. I never received any chickens. The seller first said that the order would be delayed, then silence. :( Linda

Don't get me wrong, Graceful Chickens has some amazing stock out there and I do not want my experience to deter you from checking them out, however, during this *particular* transaction, I definitely got the short end of the stick. I paid for a lot of 8 Barbezieux chicks (mind you, this was a buy-out only auction). After the auction ended, I sent the seller all of my shipping info and phone number once again. The weekend came and went and I didn't receive any confirmation regarding the chicks. I allowed Monday to go by before messaging the seller again through their personal website's "contact us" button, no response. I allowed 48 hours on top of that to go by (so it's not Wednesday, when birds can't be shipped) before messaging their business page on Facebook before finally getting a response. Apparently the birds were molting and the order couldn't be filled. (Why even list chicks you know you may not have?) I will say she offered three replacement options; Swedish Blue Hens, and Swedish Flower Hens (which were offered for a difference in price....), and a refund, but I found the substitution options to be luke-warm and not-comparable to the original chicks purchased so I went with the refund. I'm still very disappointed in my over-all experience considering I've heard such great things about them from others. I may or may not try again with this hatchery in the Spring.

This seller was prompt to return messages before and after shipping. We had significant loses during shipment, but they were fast and courteous and made it right, quickly.

When I received my chicks, three out of the eight chicks had perished during the two night trip from CA to LA. I notified them after a postal worker verified my package and they quickly refunded me for the three chicks I lost but, however, they said they do not provide free shipping for replacement of auction won chicks. They would only provide free shipping for the next regular purchase of chicks. That does not apply to auctions. I would have loved to have the original 8 chicks I was suppose to receive alive and well. Hopefully, the other 5 will make it.

Very pleased with the Swedish Flowering Hens I bought from Graceful Chickens. They were beautiful, healthy and vivacious and the seven were a balanced mix of colors. Thank you so much! Amy, Whites Creek TN

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.
