    Has anyone in new england recieved the chicks from ideal in one day? I ordered yesterday they said they were shipped today. I was just wondering so i could call the post office and tell them maybe tommorow.

    Holy crow! That's quick turn around! I ordered a week or two ago and they were supposed to ship today as well.

    It normally takes me two days to get them and I'm in N. Carolina. I HOPE they arrive tomorrow, but it's gotten cooler so I'm not as worried. Still want them like yesterday, though! ;-)

    What did you get? I'm anxious, haven't ordered chicks in so long, normally just hatch my own out!

    Very cool! :) Cochins are great!

    (Side note, I'm originally from Vermont. :) Just took a lovely vacation up there. I want to move back so bad. Except for the economy and taxes and lack of jobs. heh)

    I have bantam blue laced red wyandottes coming. :)

    hehe I miss it terribly, but my job pays the same no matter where I live in the U.S so I definitely couldn't afford it there, even with a steady job.

    I'm from the Rutland area.

    Mine were shipped on a Wednesday and I got them Thursday morning. And I live in North Central MA.
    So yes, they can arrive in just one day:D

    Enjoy your little fuzz butts:cool:
