    I just put in an order for silkies and frizzles from Ideal.....What can I expect shipping to be just curious. I read everywhere and wasn't real sure what to expect. They were closed on Saturdays (which why don't they have to feed and water and care for animals on the weekends too?)

    Quote:Ideal shipping charge for me was about 17.45 They charge a small order fee. A 1/4 box fee and then an air mail fee. I thought it was a little much, but I wanted the chicks. Oh well.
