    Last night I placed my order with Ideal Poultry for more chicks. I'm so excited! I currently have 5 barred rock hens - and we're lovin' the eggs AND the chickens! Our girls cannot keep up with the demand of friends and neighbors who want them, too!

    I ordered all pullets:
    4 Columbian Wyandottes
    2 Silver laced Wyandottes
    2 Golden laced Wyandottes
    1 Amarucauna
    4 White Plymouth Rocks
    2 Buff Wyandottes

    They said they will include male chick/packing peanuts if my order isn't large enough to fill a quarter of a box...I don't know if 15 is big enough or not - what's been your experience?

    They say the total on my order is $57.06 - is this the true total they will charge my card, or will there be hidden charges?

    I'm SO excited! I cannot wait! They will ship on February 18th :)

    I just ordered 10 from them a week and a half ago and they sent 8 males for warmth. That would mean you would get about 3 random males. Its fun to guess what the males are - enjoy!

    I think the boys are going to have find new homes via our local feed store - my neighbors will not appreciate the wonderful serenades...though I'd love to keep a beautiful/friendly roo...I just can't do that to my neighbors.

    I also ordered from Ideal today! You can request "no packing peanuts", but pay a SMALL insurance charge...mine was $1.75. Does not make a promise of NO males, however. I am very excited, as this is my first journey into "chickenhood"!

    3 Barred Rock
    2 Buckeye (Hubby is from Ohio..had to do it!)
    2 Australorp
    2 Partridge Cochins

    I have heard mixed reviews about Ideal, but I am hopeful! Just worry about the distance from TX to Maryland.

    Let me know how your order is when you get it [​IMG]

    That will be your true cost. I ordered from Ideal in October, and paid exactly what they told me I'd pay! Congrats, I'm jealous!
