    I've been waiting since I placed the order with Ideal on 01/31/11 and they finally arrived this morning at the P.O.! This was my first time ordering by mail. I was so excited and had everything ready for the babies. I picked them up (lots of peeping going on) and got them home, cut the box open carefully and there they were, peeping and ready to get out of the box. I placed them in the warm brooder and they started drinking and eating right away...all appear healthy and well...THANKFULLY!

    I ordered 10 pullets:

    1 Australorp
    1 Golden Sex Link
    1 Rex Sex Link
    1 Silver Laced Wyandotte
    3 Ameraucanas
    1 Light Brown Leghorn
    1 White Leghorn
    1 Buff Rock

    Brooder:
