    Hello, I am expecting a shipment from Ideal coming Friday morning. I had a shipment a few weeks ago and they included 15 Black Australorps for peanuts. I was able to give them away the same day. Ideal is sending me 4 replacements that didn't make it alive the first shipment. I am sure I will have 10 - 15 peanuts. I am in Western CT (New Milford area) I am willing to meet halfway. I am unsure of the breed they will send this time, but if someone wants them let me know.. Thanks..

    Kinda off topic, but i'm also getting a small order from Ideal and wondered if they let you know what the "packing peanuts" were or if you deduced it yourself.

    you can request they mark the extras... I've heard of hatcheries using marker on the heads of extras so you'll know for sure.
