    My mail lady delivered my chicks about an hour ago [​IMG] They even threw in 3 extra cochin bantams and all are chirping and running about. I'm very happy with my experience with Ideal and I will be ordering from them again.

    [​IMG]
    These are the bantams I ordered. black silkies, blue cochins, and white frizzle cochins

    I had to enlist Hubby's help to rein me in yesterday so I wouldn't order from Ideal! If left on my own, I surely would have caved and ordered the Surprise Special SRs for .75 each! Even knowing it is too dang hot and even though I still have 10 2-wk-olds brooding in the house!

    Last time I ordered that special, I tried listing what they had marked as sold out for this year so I'd have an idea of what to expect in my box. Cochins were on that list and I got 13 - yes, 13! - out of 25! I DID NOT WANT cochins! Fortunately, I was able to sell them all to one lady. (whew) So you can't go by what you see on their site.

    Then I ordered when they had a sale on pullets. Ordered 25 and they sent me 39!!! OK by me b/c I have sold most of those extras as well.

    Quote:I don't either, I hear stories of a few extras here or there, but in my last 9 orders, I think the only time an extra came, it ended up not being an extra!

    However, they are so cheap to begin with, I don't really mind it!

    I do still hope the first time I transfer them from the cardboard shipping box into the brooder, that I will count an extra or two!

    I am really looking forward to tomorrow morning! I always get up really early and go get a takeaway breakfast and sit in the post office parking lot to eat. Then I see when the morning mail truck pulls in and I am usually in the lobby of the post office when they call!

    That way the littles get home and fed, watered and warm ASAP! [​IMG]

    I am going to preheat the brooder tonight! :)

    I love having chicks, it is an addiction! [​IMG]

    Quote:I'm not sure yet lol but I've posted pics here for people to guess https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=7106547#p7106547 I know one silkie, and I'm guessing mostly cochins.

    I got 1 Silkie (Black:~) too! I also got a Self Blue OEGB and, also like you, a bunch of cochins!

    I got a self blue too :-D I got another blue but it's not an Old English, it has a different comb and is smaller..
