    We got our Ideal order this morning. I ordered 5 chicks, and got 13 packing peanuts to keep them warm!! [​IMG] I'm curious which of you have gotten more than that!

    Oh my you hit the packin peanut lotto!!! The most i have gotten was 10 in an order of 14 so 24 chicks i ended up with. I ordered bantams and they sent me standard size barred rocks as packing peanuts, Its hard enough to find a roo a home much less 10 or more!!! I feel your pain, those buggers can eat quite a bit too

    I got 10 one time and they turned out to be straight run Barred Rocks. Pretty cool for freebies!

    I think my babies are buff orps. I puled 4 out of the brooder, and they all had buff feathers. Altough they could be gold sex links, too.
