    Anyone care to share what they've received as extras or packing peanuts?

    From McMurray, I ordered four different sets of heavy layers and got a dozen RSL roos.

    From cackle, I ordered a duck assortment and received one extra duck.

    From Ideal I ordered several rare breed chicks (silkies and duccles) and got nothing extra.

    What have you received as extras or packing peanuts? What did you order, and from what Hatchery?

    I have never gotten packing peanuts, but I have always loved the idea that they find homes for access birds that way. I ordered from McMurray and they give out one extra free rare breed chick (probably an extra egg that hatched, since they always have extra eggs in case some don't hatch). That is always a lot of fun. [​IMG] I got a Black Cochin and a Cuckoo Maran.
