My order of 9 pullets from Ideal Poultry arrived yesterday. All seemed to be healthy and off to a good start. Interestingly, I received 17. My first thought was extra cockerels as packing peanuts. However, none are marked as requested and if they are cockerels, they're a mix of the same breeds I ordered. This is what I got: Buff Orpington: I ordered 3 but received 5. All are similar size (large) with buff feathers coming in. Ameraucana: I ordered 2 but received 4. All have muffs and are brownish. Two look more like chipmunks and the other two similar but without the light colored strips on the back. Rhode Island Red: I ordered 2 and received 2. They are reddish brown, so easy to pick out from the bunch. Barred Rock & Dominque: I ordered 1 each and received a total of 6. They all have smallish white/yellow spots on their heads, dark legs and looks just like the pics online. Trying to sex them based on the white/yellow on their heads doesn’t help me with their sex. They all seem too similar. None have lots of white/yellow on the heads. It’s pretty localized. It seems as if they gave me 2 extra of each of the breeds expect for the Rhode Island Reds. Eventually I have to figure it out. I only have room for maybe 10 full sized birds and roosters will be a problem where I live. I can post pictures later if there is something specific that would help figure them out. I’ll also call Ideal, but I’m not expecting them to know. Anyone else noticed this with Ideal?
