What breed? - Page 2

Good point then depending on the sale reselling those chicks can help pay for the order.  I think in the warmer months Ideal offers insurance for about $1.50 but I think it would be better to add on other chicks to resell, that's what I've done too so that the ones you order don't die from lack of warmth.

Even with Ideal you can opt out of the packing peanuts, but you have to either increase your order or pay the extra shipping fees. When I order from Ideal, I make sure my order is large enough and include a note saying no packing peanuts. I don't need to deal with extra cockerels, I hatch enough of my own thank you very much  :D. If I only want a smaller amount of birds, I tack on extra pullets of popular or rare breeds. I have no trouble selling them either as chicks or started birds.
