    Thanks... it was my first time ordering from them and I was pleased. They were nicer quality than I thought. The golden laced cochin is BEAUTIFUL!! The only gripe is with the Lavender silkies... I have 2 and one has NO feet feathers. The other one is nice. I would recommend them. Are you looking for something in particular?

    We ordered from Ideal and had good luck. Only lost one chick. They are only 9.5 weeks now though. Here are some pictures.
    Day one.

    wow ideal makes some good birds [​IMG]
     
  7. Heck, all of mine come from ideal. They're pretty, but are not show quality. My yokohamas from Ideal have a few streaks of red on their shoulders instead of the rich mantling as can be seen on Ideal's picture. Ah, well, they're still pretty, and I have maaaany pictures.

    As babies:
