    Filled several orders last year for me, #1 in my opinion
    Pros- great customer service, easy to work with, work very hard to fill specific orders, 100% sexing on three orders, chicks very healthy with no mortality.
    Cons- None

    My first 'store bought' chicks came from Ideal, they are true to their breed in appearance, and very healthy! Just thought I'd add some support to the thread. [​IMG]

    This is my first time ordering chicks. Ordered 8 different breeds 24 total. Got 24 chicks all alive. Picked them up 6:30am. P.O. called me. Was set up and ready feed, lights the works. Mind you this is my first time w/chicks. Read a bunch of books from the Pub. Lib. so got lots of good advice on what to do.
    2 got sick but recovered, I have no Idea what was wrong each a different breed and in different brooders so maybe it was just stress and this was about a week after I got them. This was Feb 25th and I expect 12 more in May. Terri from Ideal e-mailed me twice after reading my questions on this site answering them. Pretty cool I think. By the way I could Identify the different breeds from pics on web.
