    Fuzzy butts , fuzzy butts, and more fuzzy butts! I ordered a month ago and talked to Ideal last week. Mine are scheduled to be shipped next Tuesday but she said that it was a good possiblity that they might ship tomorrow. I am REALLY hoping for tomorrow as I am all ready and the brooder and dishes are cleaned and sanitized waiting for them. If I have to wait another week I guess I will just have too, but I may not be happy about it. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    My order from Ideal is supposed to come this week- it was originally scheduled to ship out on 6/30. While I have 4 chicks that are ready to go out to the coop -it should be finished this week- I bought them from a feed store so these are my first ever mail order chicks (and ducks)! The order I placed goes something like this-

    1 golden laced wyandotte
    2 silver laced wyandottes
    1 silver laced cochin
    1 blue laced cochin
    2 cayuga duckings (I'm especially excited about these)
    (They're all pullets) I was told there may also be some "packing peanuts".

    I think the order I placed with the local feed store for another golden laced wyandotte and 2 buff orpingtons may also be coming in this week!!!!

    I'm about to be in chick/duck heaven and I can't wait!
