    they shipped on time. all healthy. and the chicks i wanted... Twice. most everyone that deals with ideal likes them, but i have heard some negative responses.

    Love them and will be ordering from them again this year.
    Ordered 4 Buff Orps for myself and then added more to the order.
    All arrived and survived.
    Crossing fingers this next order will be as good. Dh wants a New Hampshire Red and dd and I want some(2/3) D Uccles. Plus my barn owner wants some Speckled Sussex

    In years past when I started in chickens I ordered from them and McMurray and was very very pleased with Ideal. I think McMurry is WAY overpriced for what they have personally. JMO

    one thing i like about ideal is you dont have to order a minimum of 25 chicks so thats why i ordered from them and i hope they are all alive when they get here [​IMG]

    I had a great experience ordering from Ideal. Beware that the weather is cold this time of year and hopefully being in the south it will be warm enough that you won't have problems in shipping.

    Sounds like Ideal is "Ideal" [​IMG]

    I too will be placing an order but will have to wait for a warm snap, it is EXTREMELY cold & windy here right now & even when we do have a warm up it doesn't last very long! [​IMG]
  10. i've used ideal for about 5 years now and have yet to have a problem. always get healthy chicks. nearly always get extras. customer service is great--knowledgeable and friendly.
