I placed an order with Ideal for 8 Production Reds pullets and 8 Americana pullets and 2 Americana Roos. My postman came to the door at 8 o'clock this morning with my chicks, I was totally surprised!!! Luckily I had already set up the brooder or I would have been in a pickle. They said that they would notify me 7 days in advance of the shipment but I had not received any notice. So I checked my emails just to make sure I hadn't missed it and the email was sent last night. I'm guessing it was sent as they were closing up the office for the day. So in effect I received the notice that they were shipped and the chicks on the same day. Also I'm not sure what I got. I recognize 4 of the chicks as Americanas and 4 as Production Reds but the rest are mystery chicks. 4 are a pale yellow and the rest are a pale redish color. Oh well if they at least turn out to be 2 roos and the rest hens I suppose it's ok. My two older roos have just about had it. Out of 6 eggs I'm lucky to get 2 that are fertile.
