    change my order from Ideal? They are supposed to arrive in 15 days. I ordered 2 assorted silkies, and 4 assorted OEGB, along with several other chicks. The price per chick for those 2 are the same, but I have decided that I would rather go with 6 silkies and scratch the OEGB (not enough breeding pens, not enough time to build them!) Plus I am getting a little concerned that with only 2 silkies, I may not get a hen, which is what I really want so I can have a dependable broody hen. Would it be a big deal for me to change that to 6 assorted silkies, and 0 OEGB?

    It may push the shipment of your order to a later date, but then again it may not. Ya never know unless you ask! [​IMG]

    I emailed, and they are currently sold out on silkies. So I stuck with my original order, I really really hope that my 2 assorted silkies are a pair... or maybe I should just buy some more later when they become available [​IMG] Or I could buy silkie hatching eggs if I ever get a broody!
    I LOVE Ideal hatchery! And I can't wait to get my chicks!
