    They would be arriving in Summer. So do you think they would send only a couple?

    If you ordered from Ideal for summer delivery they probably won't send any packing peanuts. I received 3 order from them last year; 2 order in June and 1 order in August and didn't get one extra.

    Of course be careful what you wish for! I placed an order with them in January that shipped the last week in March. They arrived during CO's first big snowstorm of the winter and I received 13 packing peanuts to protect the 5 chicks I ordered!!
