    1 white rock
    1 buff rock
    1 Barred Rock
    1 Welsummer
    1 Silver Laced Wyandotte
    1 Columbian Wyandotte
    2 Speckled Sussex
    2 white silkies

    Thanks

    It all depends on how BAD you want them! At the end for me, it's worth it!

    I will wait just a little longer...but not much longer. I have thought about ordering from some other hatchery. I rather liked what I received from Ideal, but I would like to have them in the next couple of months.

    As of today, I have been waiting for about two months. I think I will wait until Mon., and then if I have not heard anything, I will go with another hatchery.

    I suggest that you call them and verify that they still have your name on the list.

    When you want a lot of different breeds you have to wait until they have all of them at the same time.
