    It depends on what you are ordering, the demand, and time of year. Can be anywhere from, "they have them ready to ship this week", to "we are on back order, expected date is 6-8 weeks down the road".

    I ordered from ideal in mid February and because I wanted a specific breed, I didn't get them till late march.

    If I wanted a bunch of cornish rocks in stock now, I'd probably be able to have them shipped during the next hatch.
