    Sorry to hear your having so much trouble with your chicks. Are you sure it's a male, sometimes they are hard to sex this early on. Glad Ideal refunded you anyway. I've always had the best experience with them and my chicks, not one has ever died.

    it still might be a pullet. i thought my lavendars were a trio but the one that was growing the slowest ended up being the girl and the other 2 were boys.

    I hope that shes a female, Im hoping that because she was sick it slowed her feather growth...

    I'm thinking about getting some chicks from Ideal...

    Red Shouldered Yokahama
    Red Silkies
    Partridge Silkies
    Red Crested Red Polish
    Buff Laced Polish
    Mille Fluer D'Uccle

    Anyone have any photos of these breeds they got from ideal or any insight? I saw some pics early in the thread of red silkies that encouraged me quite a bit to have more faith in hatchery silkies. Ive only seen one pic of some yokahamas from ideal that were very impressive for hatchery birds.

    I belive the name of this thread should be changed to "Official Ideal Poultry Stock Thread"

    anyhow... here is an update on my chicks there a month old now and these are the standouts from my to flock... (4 Weeks)

    Overall Best Chicks: I have absolutly changed my mind about Leghorns, and I will now officially declare that the IDEAL 236 is my Favorite Breed, they are extreamly friendly far better pets than Silkies and Cochins, and I cant Wait for the Eggs to start coming, the pullets currently are double the size of my RIR and BR of the same age...

    Polish:(hopefully the crest fills ups soon)
