    Does anyone know how much the insurance is for shipping chicks without the extra males for warmth?

    I think I just paid around $1.70 insurance total for 12 chicks. Very reasonable in my opinion. I got all 12 within 2 days and all were very healthy.
    They were all 1 week old yesterday.

    Lots of fun and the kids just love them.

    Yes, definitely very reasonable for the insurance.. I'll definitely be making an order in a couple of months for some buff orps and buff laced polish.. Maybe for my bday in April.. = ) I just wish they had blue orps and I could have my complete stock in one order.. Blue orps are so hard to find.. Looks like I'll have to get some eggs to hatch myself..

    Yay, I can order my chicks through my local TSC and they order from Ideal.. I'll be able to order only what I want and won't have to worry if there are enough of them to keep warm.. Hmm, now for the planning stages.. = )
