    I am thinking about getting some Japanese Bantams from Ideal Hatchery and was wondering if anyone has any pictures of their chickens from Ideal?

    Thank you! [​IMG]

    I ordered Japanese bantams from Ideal. I can take some pictures tomorrow of what I have. They arrived in two days exactly as they said they would. I ordered 8 straight run assorted. All arrived alive but lost 6 within hours of receiving them (but all 10 of the packing peanut roo's were fine). Ideal sent 6 as a replacement, lost one in shipping and then I lost 3 more again within hours (but all 15 of the packing peaunut roo's were fine). I was told that they chill easily and that could have been the cause. I had no problem with Ideal and will order from them again but if I order any more Japanese Bantams I will order extras. However, I have plenty of RIR roosters.

    Here is some pictures of my Japanese. I believe I have one Roo and one Pullet of each, White and I believe the other is Mottled. The larger of each was from my first order received on 3/4 and the smaller was the replacement received on 3/18. Both the smaller have definite larger comb then the older ones. Sorry one picture is a little blurry, my son stuck his hand in the photo.
