    They have a huge selection more breeds than most [​IMG]

    I have delt with ideal for a few years! (I have also delt with other hatcheries) I think if something happens as long as they try & fix it I will go back to them!

    They have a wonderful custumer service deptment & anything they can do so you are satisfied (that is reasonable) they will do credit resend!

    I had more chickens coming last week & I canceled them because we have snow!!! & I am sure they would have credit me

    they always call me if something "changes" ,, they had a BO problem last month, and i got black sex links instead, and they were gonna put the difference back on my card,, i was like,,, geesh, cant ya just take it off my next order,, there was no problem, this month i got my BO's early, they called and asked if it was allright,, i was like,,, WELL YA ,, lol
     
  3. I've had the same observation as promisedlandfarm - my chicks from there have never been as healthy looking or active as from MM. Even as adults they act duller and some are plain strange looking. They also don't have as good a sexing record as MM (I've never received a roo when ordering pullets from them). When ordering from Ideal, I can count on getting at least 2 or 3 per 25. However, does that mean I'll never order from them again? Nah. Ordering baby chicks is the luck of the draw. Sometimes you get a few duds. Good luck - whatever you decide to do.

    We got our chicks today. They all seem healthy, of course they are our first chicks so I dont have much to go on.

    When you get sex-links, because they are sex-links is the sexing of the chick always correct?
