    Sorry Pringle,

    I know you won't forget again. It happend to us too. We had a really hot spell and our Aussie was sleeping outside under the deck where it was cooler. We were leaving the ducks out with him, but when the weather cooled off and he started sleeping inside again we forgot that the ducks needed to be put up for the night and lost one of them (my favorite) to a raccoon. Wish I lived closer, I'd let you have one of my Austrolorps.

    [​IMG] Sorry for your loss. Check on craigslist in your area, they might have something. Any farms near you? Good luck. [​IMG]

    I haven't orderd from Ideal, but was reading a thread earlier that said there was no minimum. They did have an additional fee for the small order though and sent an additional 8 (i think) little roo packing peanuts to keep the pullet chicks alive and warm during shipping.
