We placed an order with Ideal about 2 weeks ago.. When I talked to the lady she said everything was sold out except an assortment of Bantams for the 29th, and we needed that day so that they could ship the two ducklings out that we wanted too (they're now sold out for the season)... So we placed the order for 8 Bantams and 2 ducklings.. and from what I understand they are adding 4 packing peanuts. Then I had seen that on the site it said almost everything I wanted was available.. So I wasn't "that" excited.. But now I am! The last time I had chicks was easter of last year, my first ever chicks. Then we had ducklings early this year (and have 6 in the brooder now).. But gee, this is exciting.. and now I'm worried about them being shipped - I didn't think it was going to be so cold.. Any good stories from people who have shipped babies in this type of weather? They ship tomorrow. Should be here Thursday or Friday. .. Yes.. I talk to much.
