    I ordered chicks from Ideal back in January, in hopes that the weather would be a little more mild then they ship. Wouldn't you know it the weather has been warm all winter, and when my chicks are finally getting ready to ship the weather people are hyping the first major winter storm we've had all winter!!! [​IMG] The storm blows in tomorrow and Friday and my babies are due to arrive Friday morning. [​IMG] I'm hoping everyone will be ok!!

    Me too!! I called Ideal to tell them that I have no problem with packing peanuts to keep my babies warm. The local P.O. knows too. They told me that they'll let the driver from Denver to Conifer know. I guess when the driver knows that there are chicks he'll put them in the heated cab with him. Here's hoping!! [​IMG]

  4. what bad timing!! Hope they arrive fine and spunky!

    Woohoo!!! My babies arrived safe and sound!! [​IMG] I got a call at 8:15am from the P.O. letting me know my chicks had arrived. Every single one made it. I drove down to the P.O. in a blizzard, but we're home. I ordered 5 pullets, and received 13 packing peanuts!! lol [​IMG] Anyone need a roo? I'm incredibly impressed with Ideal's service with this order. [​IMG] Off to snuggle fuzzy butts!

    I have to agree. Ideal is great. I went there yesterday to pick up my latest fuzzybutt order(250 miles round trip). When i got there i met Shannon(the nice lady i deal with) and that was a big mistake.LOL She was very nice as usual and since i drove that distance to pick up my order and meet her she threw in an extra pullet and roo. Well that put me at 27 chicks in my flock. I only have room for 12 to 14 so i'll be building another coop and run soon. Think i may build extra big. LOL Good luck to all
