    I was planning to order some chicks from Idealm but noticed in just a couple of hours, all of the chickens that were on my 'wish list' are all sold out until June. Does this mean I will be able to order them and recieve them in June? Or does it mean I can order in June and recieve them in... oh say ..July?

    Thanks! [​IMG]

    I think that means that the next ship date is in June, so you would recieve them in June.
    Someone correct me if I am wrong.

    You would have known this information over a week ago if you would have listened to my radio show on Saturday, March 28th. [​IMG] I had a special story on the national chick shortage. I had statements from all the major hatheries across the nation.

    Listen every Saturday at 9:00am EST for future updates, and information!

    I will start listening! [​IMG]
    It was strange because this morning all of the chicks I wanted were available. I just check about 30 minutes ago, and they are all sold out until June. [​IMG]

    Just about a week ago the red silkies were available, I emailed the company, and they were all of the sudden sold out....

    I've had good luck calling them about certain breeds. I was able to get an order of assorted feather legs last summer when they were supposedly sold out.

    Why is there such a shortage of chicks? (Sorry, I did not listen to the radio news on it!)

    Ideal does pre-orders. If you really want those chicks, you need to order then NOW! They will charge your card a few days prior to sending the chicks.
