    I want to order day old chicks off of Ideal, but they are sold out until June. Since I cant order them online, so I need to email Ideal with my order?
    I plan on getting about 14 chicks.Bantams and standards. [​IMG]

    I am very excited since last year I was going to order, but they all sold out. So hopefully this year I wont be too late! [​IMG]

    I cant wait! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I don't know if Ideal may be closer to you, but I got my chicks from Murray Mcmurray last year and they did excellent. I have also ordered from Meyer hatchery. HTh Janet

    I would order from another hatchery, but I like that Ideal has only $25 dollar minimum.

    CALL them to be put on the waiting list. Sometimes they have people cancel their order, creating an opening.

    Quote:Yes. They take pre-orders. You make the order for the date that you want, or that they are first available for and they will charge your card about 3 days before the ship date they give.

    I pre-ordered ours from Ideal and they arrived
    one day after their ship date. The earlier you order, the better off I think you are.

    We got our 9 pullets plus 10 extras shipped to Michigan for less than $32. Hard to
    beat that.

    Townline hatchery has some nice chicks and their prices are pretty good. Their waiting list isn't long I got our chicks and guineas within 2 weeks of my order. They are healthy too.

    So with Ideal you don't have to order a min of 25 birds, it only has to be a min of $25?
