    I ordered 12 chicks from Ideal Poultry on the 18th. I paid the insurance (which was less than $2) so they would not include the male chicks. They shipped yesterday from Texas and arrived overnight here to TN!!! I was so excited to pick them up today. They are all alive, active and look great. They are in their brooder right now climbing all over their feeder, drinking water and pecking each other,lol.


    This is our 'baby brooder' that they are in for the next two weeks

    3 Sex link
    3 Production
    3 Australorps
    3 Barred Plymouth Rocks

    Although I'm a little worried about the colors, arent the production supposed to be light as well as the red stars?

    *edited to add: figured it out, email says my sex links are black...not red.

    ok I just read that apparently the sex links are black, for some reason I expected red,lol. Guess that explains it

    Quote:I didn't receive my shipping confirmation this week (like the previous email said I would) so I wrote them last night to ask if they had shipped yet, and I just checked my email...she said they actually shipped Tuesday. So you may end up with yours just showing up at the post office too,lol.
