    Call them and ask...they are very helpful in the customer service department.
    I have used them and been very happy!

    Good luck.

    They package according to the weather. There's really no way to predict how many "peanuts" you're going to get. [​IMG]

    Yep, probably depends on what they have and the weather to how many peanuts you'll be getting. Might not be getting any. As for ship date, you'll have to put your list together and they will tell you later when your expected ship date will be.

    There not always "up to date" on there availabilty but if you order and put in the comment box that you would like them shipped when they are all available, the wait 1-2 days and call them they will tell you when they can be shipped out. Or you can simply call them and ask when all are availble that you would like to order.

    Quote:That is when they put in extra chicks for warmth reasons. Most times they end up being roosters, but sometimes you get lucky and get hens.
