What is the protocol for responding to multiple best offers?

If I counteroffered and have not heard back from the first eBay member who supplied a Best Offer, can I make a counteroffer on another eBay member who supplied a different best offer?

Yes, you can make as many counter offers as you want.  First to click yes wins.

Yes, make your counter offers.  First come first serve.

Each offeror is independent of the other.  You don't have to wait for a counteroffer to be concluded before you can accept a different offer or make a counteroffer to a different offeror.  Once the item is sold (or the last item if it is a multiple item listing) by someone using the BIN button, or you accepting an offer, or a buyer accepting the counteroffer, all pending offers and counteroffers expire, so there is no danger of selling more than you have in inventory (assuming your count with eBay for a multiple item listing is accurate, including for each variation if you have a listing with variations).
