    This place is a real problem for me because you can order small numbers of chicks of a mix of breeds, and the shipping charges are not astronomical. So I can keep going back and ordering, say, 8 chicks, and that doesn't seem like much, does it?

    But if you do it enough times you could end up with, oh, 75 chickens.

    Yes. Somebody has to put a stop to this.

    I demand unreasonable minimum orders and expensive shipping!!!

    You can order small numbers? But you get packing peanuts with small amounts - right?

    I used to believe that was an issue - but now, it just doesn't matter. I am done for....

    16 hens
    George the roo
    4 little bantams
    and 3 blue runner ducks arriving Wednesday!

    Ideal send me some more.....I was so pleased with my birds, their customer service and shipping and I ordered mine in February to ship to NH. I was so fortunate.

    I got an order of 10 pullets earlier this week and there were no roos for warmth- and I was glad. Since all my hatching this spring has me up to 72 chickens!

    EEK!

    Ideal has been great to deal with. I will deal with them again and again.

    Ideal is great. Ordered chicks back in december. Post Office screwed up and my chicks arrived 3 days late. Of course i lost most of them. Ideal replaced my entire order no cost to me. Did not lose a single chick from second batch.
