    I have around 13 of these guys included for warmth in my order from Ideal. Any idea what they are. I'm thinking Buff Orpington but there are a lot of red chick breeds. You can't really tell from the pictures but they are reddish yellow.

    From what Ive heard, Ideal adds what they call "packing peanuts" to keep your chicks warm. Most of the time these are just surpluss cockerels :/..... Could be White Leghorn, but I'm not too sure.

    yes they do, sad isn't it that they value cockerels so low, they use as packing material to keep the others warm
