    I was thinking of ordering chicks from Ideal, since I'm having a very hard time finding what I want in my area.
    I have read good and bad things about chicks from them, so I was wondering if there are any breeders on here that ship chicks? Hatching eggs is not an option, I have terrible luck hatching shipped chicken eggs!

    I am looking for 5-10 chicks of the following breeds, just enough so I have some to choose from. If anyone breeds more than one of these, that's a big plus!

    Here's what I'm looking for, hope someone can help me out! [​IMG]

    Blue, black, or splash OEGB
    BTW Japanese
    BTB Japanese
    White or Buff silkies
    Partridge, black, blue, splash, or blue/black mottled cochins
    d'uccles in mille fleur
    d'uccles in other colors

    I would consider getting young birds as well, depending on the price [​IMG]

    I purchased Japanese from Ideal and all but one made it fine. However I lost six within a day, but Ideal sent replacements without hesitation. I don't know if a private breeder would do the same. Just something to think about.
