I am putting in a chick order soon (from IDEAL I think) and need to pad my order (or let them throw in whatever packing peanuts they want....) since I only want to order about 15 chicks. I am sure I will have to freezer camp the extras, and I am not altogether opposed to this. But the last few times I did this it was with extras of my dual purpose birds. They mature so slowly that by the time they are big and nicely feathered, the meat gets tough. So this time, I am thinking I want a fast bird. I want to be able to get a nice pelt off them since I use the feathers, but I don't want to have to wait 4-7 months to get it. By then they are tough and stringy and have eaten too much food to be worth it. I don't really want cornish X, I have heard too many bad things. Plus I would like more color variety, if possible. Any other suggestions?
