    I'm soooo excited for you!!! [​IMG] I also ordered from Ideal but mine will not be shipped until April 30th. I ordered 6 Rhode Island Red pullets, 1 male, 6 Barred Rock Pullets, 6 Ideal 236 Pullets, and 6 Ameraucana Pullets. I can't wait.

    My brooder's ready, my coop is built and I've been DREAMING about chickens every night since I ordered them!!!

    Be sure to let us know how everything goes. I've heard nothing but great things about Ideal so I'm sure everything will go great.

    I do know that Ideal adds "males for warmth" if you don't have like 20-25 chicks ordered. Hopefully you can find a good home for the extras.
