    I ordered from Ideal Poultry Breeding Farms, Inc.

    There was a special for day old chicks for .85 cents, so I ordered 25 of them and I called them and ask for a total and they said $33.75+shipping and I paid and the lady said I was alright to go and they shipped. Now, its been about 3 weeks.

    They sent me another invoice saying the total changed to $54.75+ shipping original price.

    do you guys thinks theres something wrong?

    Heres the forums when I bought it.

    You paid the original invoice and now they want more money? What did the invoice that shipped with the chicks say?

    your babies 25 @ $.85 would not have been but $21.25 plus shipping. Even at $1.81 they still would only be $45.25, they are trying to rip you off. I'd check into it before sending them more money.

    They charged my account twice today for an order, after I wanted to cancel one of the breeds. They placed one order with them and one without. Now I have twice as many chicks as I wanted on their way, and I don't have the heart to cull chicks. Great.
