Hi everyone,

I got my chick order this morning and wanted to let everyone know my experience and thoughts. I ordered the special that Ideal has running for the month of October. It includes 25 or more assorted st. run bantam chicks for only .99 a chick! My total for everything came to $35.50, this included $24.75 for 25 chicks, small order charge of $7, and an air mail charge of $3.75.

I placed the order on October 9th, I was sent an e-mail letting me know that my shipping date would be October 13th. On October 12th I was sent an e-mail saying my order was shipping and I got my chicks early morning on October 14th.

All chicks arrived alive and happy and I got a GREAT assortment. I believe they included 27 chicks total but that was just a rough count. I will take picture soon so everyone can see the variety and get the exact number. I will also keep this thread updated to let everyone know how they are all turning out and if any die. Hope you enjoy and I will get a picture update soon, I just wanted to make sure the chicks had time to eat and drink before I started taking pictures of them.

Little light yellow chick with pink feathered legs

3 yellow and grey chicks with feathered pink legs

These are cochins. Either white or buff... And the yellow and grey look like columbian cochins

2 multi-colored chicks with cute red faces

These look like golden sebrights





Black and yellow feather footed chick

This is a back cochin


Reddish feather footed chick

I think this is a red cochin, but might be a partridge cochin

The greyish feather footed looks like a blue cochin

Yea they are sooo cute. I am falling in love with the little blue/grey chick with the black beak and legs. I have no idea what it is but it is so cute and loves being held.

I think the little blue chick is a Self Blue Old English. I have some of those. They are so friendly. One, that is a rooster, loves to cuddle with me.
