Is there a chance that one of Ideal Hatcheries "packing peanuts" could be a hen? Or is it 100% that they only stick roo's as the packing peanuts?

I ordered 3 female chicks and I am wondering what breed and sex "packing peanuts" will be shipped. I hope they stick some females int here

1 RIR

They are usually males, but sometimes a pullet might get in the mix. Not sure how often it happens though. They put 4 Buff Orp roos in with my duck order, I could swear on looks more pulletish.......but not sure at this point.

How was you able to buy just 3 chicks? I thought there was a $20.00 minimal.

Good luck with your new chicks

Edit to add, forgot to mention....my experinces have been mostly good. The one bad one, they corrected, their customer service is awesome.

My first purchase was with Ideal and personally I don't think I'll buy chicks from another hatchery than them. I will however buy from private breeders to provide new genes. But I liked Ideal.
