    They run some great specials.

    Last week I ordered the Rare Breed Pullet special, got a confirmation e-mail from them and then 2 days later they called and said, "Sorry it was sold out"... can we send it next week?... well of course I didn't want to put day old chicks with week old chicks so I had to cancel the order. Made me sad, but the reason I ordered is because the price was right.

    Most of their specials right now are straight run.

    Probably a good thing I cancelled the order. Keeps my marriage intact!

    [​IMG]...The reason I chose Ideal was because they were the only one, beside my pet chicken, who would let me order a smaller amount then 25...(But then I ended up getting 25 anyway...Chicken math at it's finest) But I'm very happy with Ideal. I changed my order several times and the costumer service was excellent! I got all 25 chicks this thursday and they were all alive and active and all of them are still alive and doing great. I won't know for awhile yet how they did sexing them...And their price is good compared with most of the other hatcheries. I will definitely be ordering from them again.
