    I swear, that is the MOST annoying website ever!!! I always write down what I want on paper and then call them. they're super nice, and I've never had any problem with their customer service at all. I say give 'em a call!

    I had a fortune cookie one time that said "The best way to sell is to make it easy to buy." Ideal dropped the ball..

    This is what DH had to resort to this morning... and even that was a test (LOL) they had a huge problem with their riw hatch today so those are out for their next few hatches.


    We plan on making some sex links for some profit , so we replaced them with delawares.. they will work i suppose! The lady was nice on the phone and everything.

    We had to choose ideal because the time of year, and hatching is slowing down, higher numbers are being required and for some sites you have to get that minimum number per type and sex, and that would be FAR too many for us.

    we ordered 63 i think it was [​IMG] oh boy!!! order date 9/8/10​

    I love Ideal. They're really nice and helpful. Just call them and place your order. I know that they have had some serious health issues with one of the family members in the recent past but I'm under the impression that everything is ok now.

    Just call them....

    Quote:Agreed. Nothing wrong with talking to them on the phone. I actually prefer talking to customer service on the phone vs. the internet. Technology is great, but talking to someone is still important to me.

    And just for fun, the three yellowish ones were the roos. I think the one in the top right is the pullet but not sure. I had some other red ones in that hatch. The Delaware hens not only give you the red sex link, they pass barring down to their sons but not not the daughters. The rooster's tail is barred but the pullet's tail is solid black.
