spring flowering bulbs

My bulbs will be arriving around September 30th. Is this too early to plant in zone 6, Michigan? I can't remember when I got my bulbs last year, but I remember it being later. Is it bad to plant them too early or too late? Also, last year i had a problem with squirrels, so this year I plan to buy something (I just can't remember what) to keep them away. Bonemeal? Bloodmeal? Are either of these right? Thanks :)
