I've gotten 3 batches from Ideal this year- 1 standard mix and 2 bantam mixes. The standards were shipped with the first batch of bantams. The standards were fine (lost 1 in shipping) but the bantams were very weak. I lost 4 in transit and another 14!! by the time Monday came around. They of course replaced them and we just chalked it up to the heat. My last shipment came this past Friday. 4 DOA, 2 deformed ( 1 w/foot bent behind and crossed beak, 1 that was walking on it's elbows) and dead at home count is 11 so far!! I have never gotten deformed chicks before from anywhere I have ordered from here for years and never had this problem with anything that I ordered! I refer my friends there and love the customer service What is going on this year? Different breeders? Anyone else having a problem this year??
