    well i thought i should put this in raising baby chicks since thats what ideal is for if its in the wrong section please move it and im sorry.
    but my question is i ordered my chicks yesterday so early that it was basicly the 26th still. i ordered from them a long time ago and i dont remember if they will send an email or not or how they do it. oh and these are the types i ordered thought it would be different in my flock

    I ordered from them in March of this year. They did send me email notification that my chicks had been shipped. I was very happy with their service.[​IMG]

    so you ordered them and how long did it take them to email you that they were being shipped?

    I also bought from ideal with a ship date of 9/9/09 and the e-mailed me the day of the 9th saying they had shipped. out of 37 shipped I only lost 3 within the first week. due to what looked like a respitory problem. They refunded promptly and the rest are doing great.

    Most of my orders they have, one they didn't, the chicks still got here. If you have a question call them, they're very friendly, helpful and reassuring.

    I have an order coming next month... [​IMG] hoping for no postal gorillas in their path...

    I also have two batches of eggs being sent monday - more [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Call them and good luck with your chicks.
