    This is the email I received tonight from Ideal:

    Your poultry has been shipped!þ
    From: Ideal Poultry ([email protected])

    It says that it was shipped today then it has tomorrows date. So do you think they shipped today or are they just getting ahead of the game and emailing the notices tonight?

    That probably means today or tomorrow.... Either way, they should be on their way and packaged up for the current weeks hatch, as I'm pretty sure they set all eggs to be hatched on x day and do packing/shipping on x +1 day.

    The waiting game is always the hardest!

    Today's the 13th....so I'd say they went out tonight.

    I got my email after they had sent my chicks, so I would say they sent them this morning, and are just getting around to sending the email to you. What date did they say they were going to send them on?
    ETA: I had gotten a previous email saying when the chicks would be shipped; Ideal ships chicks on Mondays-Wednesdays [​IMG]

    Well they originally told me they'd ship tomorrow the 14th. I just find it odd and a little exciting to think they may have shipped earlier [​IMG]

    Probably not, they most likely just sent the email early. They time the eggs to hatch on a certain date, so I doubt they would send them early. They hatch certain breeds on certain days [​IMG] Just be ready! At least you know they are on their way [​IMG]

    I ordered from Ideal also- and they are shipping Wednesday, so they say. Which means by Friday I should have my chicks too! [​IMG]
