    Ideal is the only hatchery I’ve ordered from and I had a great experience with them. I ordered 10 chicks last summer and they all made it. One was a little weak after shipping, but she pulled through with a little extra care. I had to find them a new home due to problems with my coop that winter, but if I ever order more, I’ll order through Ideal.

    The chicks I have now are from Atwoods, and they get their birds from Ideal. All the ones I have now are great too.

    Mine shipped on a Wednesday, and arrived on Thursday, but I’m just one state over from the hatchery.

    (Just realized it autocorrected to “star” instead of saying “state”. Now it make more sense)

    Got my chicks from local feed store; however, they get them from Ideal Hatchery. My 2 are doing well.

    Cochin batams and some polish and I'll post pics when they get here I'm so excited I've been waiting weeks for mcmurry to ship and to have ideal to ship so quickly I'm kicking myself they could be half feathered by now haha
