    Thanks!! [​IMG]

    Most of my chickens are Ideal...they're still young though.

    Here they are as babies:

    I can't remember their exact age in this pic...maybe 7 weeks? They are 10 weeks now but I haven't downloaded any pics lately.

    Oh, the Silkies and Sizzle are NOT from Ideal. The Buff Orpingtons, Easter Eggers (sold as Ameraucanas), Ideal 236 Leghorns, Danish Brown Leghorns, Rhode Island Reds and Barred Rocks are all from Ideal.

    If any of my breeds are on your wishlist, let me know and I'll show you some better pics of those. I love all my chickens and I think they all belong on your list! LOL

    My first 4 orders of chicks have been from Ideal, and I've been very happy with them. Out of 50 chicks received I've only had one that died within the first 24 hours we've had them. Here are a few pictures of the order I received March 26.

    The 2 single chick pictures are of our New Hampshire Red and our golden sex link. We also got a blue cochin, a silver spangled spitzhauben, a black langshan, and 13 buff orp packing peanuts! Last summer I ordered a feather leg assortment and got a blue cochin roo, a white cochin, 2 salmon faverolles, a gold laced cochin, a red cochin, a buff brahma, and a light brahma. They're really nice birds. Our roo is enormous!!
