    I ordered 10 MW Turkey's last March and I got 10 peanuts. They are Barred Rocks, 4 roos and 6 hens very nice looking birds.
    And I ordered 60 pullets and I got one extra of 2 breeds I ordered last year.
    I just ordered their duck overstock special for January, I am gettin 20 Pekin's next Friday and with shipping it was under $40.00. I am so tickled about that price.

    What do you guys mean by 'Packing Peanuts'? I've never ordered from Ideal Hatchery before.

    They throw in a few extra chicks to help keep the others warm & to help offset any losses in shipping.

    they are called packing peanuts and usually come with a dot of dye or paint on their heads so you know those were the extras they threw in.
