I placed an order with Ideal about a month ago with a ship date of March 4th. It was for 12 chicks, and I opted out of packing peanuts, but added a heat pack to hopefully compensate. Anyways, I called earlier this week to confirm shipping, and they said we were all set with the 4th, but then got an email the night of the 3rd saying that they had shipped. It did not have a tracking number or any info, so I am not sure if they shipped the 3rd or yesterday (the 4th) as planned. Of course we are having freakish weather here in PA today, and still expecting another 5-8" of snow. Now I am REALLY worried. I am either going to have to drive to the PO in a freakish snow storm today, or the poor chicks will be in transit all day today with most likely an extra day in transit due to the weather. I plan on calling Ideal when they open, but can anyone give me any hope? If you have ordered from them did they send you tracking info? Or was the shipping notice it? Also, do you think they shipped on the scheduled day, or a day early based on the email? So worried!!!
