    Cackle Hatchery is the best. They have quality birds and are very nice to deal with.

    I like welp, the shipping prices are included in the price for the birds and no surprises at checkout time. Some places charge you for a small order fee ect like idea. If you buy less than 50 chicks you are charged 7.00 or something like that. To me 50 chicks is a lot of chicks.

    I was thinking of ordering from Ideal Hatchery. Its in the same state so I think it wont take very long to get here.

    I just ordered from Ideal and they were very nice to deal with and even tho I changed my order FOUR times they put up with me [​IMG] I'm expecting my chicks on the 23 of May...they seem to have the most birds available yet for this time of year too.

    Why is it taking so long to get your order?

    Why is it taking so long to get your order?

    Because lots of people ordered sooner? I know I placed my order in January so I could have them when I wanted them in April. They arrived exactly 2 days after the shipment date I requested and everybody was healthy. I'm already planning next year's order.
