    OK, I ordered a few chicks from Ideal, and they sent males for warmth - problem is, it is 90 degrees here!!! What a hoot, I don't even know what they are, they are not RIR because those I got in my orderand they look nothing alike, they are all yellow - my camera got dropped down the stairs, so no pics yet..................maybe they are buff orps.................

    That's exactly why I specifically told them "NO males for warmth!" when I ordered. It even says that on the shipping box. Hope they are a nice breed that you can easily find homes for.

    Ha, I asked her if I woul get males - she said no, that is only in the early spring...............so I figured I wouldn't get any
    I have too many roos now, maybe someone will want them

    I didn't get any packing peanuts either. Of course, I did order 27 chicks (though I only got 26), so that's probably why.

    Good luck with those males. Maybe they can go in the freezer??

    Could you call or write them and ask what breed they are? they should at least give you that much! I'm not looking forward to finding homes for roos...

    likely BOs, White rocks, leghorns or broilers.
