    A friend a county south just got her order in today from Ideal. Lost 1, but the other 50 or so are doing well.

    I have had orders come in on Jan 31 and early Feb. They always did well.

    I think Mypetchicken ships in winter with a heating pad in the box.. It cost extra but is well worth it.. How may are you getting ? Large quantitis should be fine with out heat as they create there own..
