    Dose ideal send you a usps tracking number when they ship out thier birds? I got one with both cackle and purely poultry and while close to useless as it never updates on time I do like it.

    I like Ideal poultry, but they didn't send us a tracking number.

    No tracking with Ideal. But I've learned those tracking #'s don't do any good anyway - by the time the USPS updates it, it's already been delivered!

    Just got four emails from ideal saying my chicks shipped today...but it's dated tomorrow. So usps never updates on time and ideal updates early lol, go figure

    Yeah, they sent us several emails too. Probably to make sure we got it. They also sent the emails the evening before they were suppose to ship so I'm not sure if they shipped early or what.

    If you want more, sign up for their e-mails and add them on facebook. The last few weeks they have had a d'uccle special - $1.05 each, but you have to buy 25. But act quickly because it seems to sell out quickly. They usually list the specials Thursdays.

    I was going to get the d'uccle special, but it wasn't going on this week so I did the feather footed one figure I'll sell off what I don't want
