I'm so disappointed that Ideal's website is down...

    Kelly G It's like herding cats!

    I'm home sick, and shopping for chicks would definitely make me feel a lot better! I hope they're up soon *sigh*.


    I am itching for a white crested black Polish this year!!!!

    It'll be up and running I'm sure, Polish are the most funny looking birds [​IMG] Are you going to go for hens or roo's?

    ChickenLittle: Yes, I had that same experience yesterday, too. I thought, for sure, it would be back up today...disappointing.

    Bantimna: I really just want pullets, and I think I'm going to get bantams this time (I already have a variety of 30 standards that I love).

    The problem is that the only company that offers sexed Polish bantams is MyPetChicken...and then you pay $10 + shipping for each bantam pullet! So I figured I'd order 12 straight run bantams from Ideal and give away any roos. I think I also want to order some "Easter Egger" bantams (they call them Ameraucanas on the website - but I don't want to open that can of worms here!), so I was going to do the same thing: order a dozen straight run and give away any roos.

    ...so here I sit with my box of kleenex, Tylenol Cold medicine, my debit card...and an un-cooperative website. *sigh*.

    Thanks! I needed that [​IMG] I don't get sick often...but when I do, I tend to throw quite the pity party for myself.
