Backyard Poultry acts as a venue to allow members to advertise poultry-related goods and services at no cost. We have no affiliation with any of the businesses advertising here and are not involved in any of the actual transactions between buyers and sellers.
As a result, we have no control over the quality, safety or legality of the items advertised, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of sellers to sell items or the ability of buyers to pay for items. We cannot ensure that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction. We do not claim to provide a 'secure trading system' for buyers or sellers. Backyard Poultry is simply a place to post ads and engage in discussion. The onus for the success or security of a transaction is entirely with the advertiser and buyer.
We advise you to do your research. Make sure the people you're dealing with are honest before any money changes hands. Ask the seller to provide references from satisfied customers (or the email address of satisfied customers, so that you can contact them directly). The safest way to buy is to examine the item you are buying in person before paying for it. Be aware of the risks of online or phone purchases.
This is predominantly an Australian site. We do not recommend dealing with overseas buyers or sellers. Please beware of scammers both overseas and in Australia. If something sounds too good to be true, it often is.
Backyard Poultry makes no recommendations regarding individual businesses and accepts no responsibility for any of the transactions or arrangements that may take place between members.
