    Hi,
    I received my order today from Ideal Poultry. I had ordered 9 pullets with a heat pack, specifically because I can not have males, or very many chickens, where I live. Ideal's order info states to order the heat pack so I don't get the males, and I even emphasized it on my order. But I got males and 15 total chicks! I need to find someone in SE WI area, who would like the extra male chicks, asap! My brooder setup is not big enough, as I only planned on 9... 3 of which are for a friend.
    Thank you!
