    I got an email from Ideal Poultry at 5pm telling me, "Your poultry order has been shipped today. You should expect delivery within 72 hours." But on the same email it says the ship date is 5/19 (tomorrow). That's when I had planned the order would ship. If they shipped today, that's great, but I just wanna know. I'd love it if my babies were a day early.

    So... for those of you who have had shipping confirmation emails from Ideal, do they send those the actual day of shipping, or expecting to ship? When do you think my babies were/will be shipped? In past orders from Ideal, I've never had a shipping confirmation email.
     

  2. when i got the same email, they arrived the day I'd planned on, not early.

    Mine arrived less than 16 hours from email! But I live bout 300 miles from the hatchery. I love IDEAL! They were awesome to deal with!

    Good Luck and God Bless!

    No chicks today, but I wasn't expecting they'd be here today. I'm 829 miles by road from the hatchery, so not TOO far. I'm hoping for tomorrow. Friday at the latest, but I'm [​IMG] for tomorrow...

    Thanks for the replies all!

    I was wondering the same question, I got a confirmation email last week that my chicks should ship today, but I haven't received my shipping email. I really hope they ship today! I am less than 200 miles from Ideal Poultry, so I hope I get them 1 day from shipping.

    Let us know when you get your chicks.

    I used Cackle Hatchery because I live in Missouri and so are they. I got them a day earlier than I thought. I think it is the distance that makes the difference.

    Hey Newlyweds, we've got the same hatch date. Originally, at least. So if I got my email yesterday, maybe mine did ship yesterday? If so, I am sure they'll be here tomorrow. What'd you order?
