My Girls from IDEAL Hatchery(and a few roos)

I have seen several posts recently in regards to examples of different hatchery chickens. I know some prefer a private breeder, but in my opinion, to each is own. I live in a suburban/urban area and need the option of sexing my chicks. I have ordered from Ideal the past two years, the same amount of time I've been enjoying my chickens!!! I have been pleased with them as a hatchery, always my chicks have been healthy, happy and survived the trip from Texas to Indiana in mid-March. I will continue to order from them (although I plan on ordering some meaties from Welp) in the future
