    I don't know what they put in there. I havn't ever ordered from them, but I see folks asking people to identify on the Raising baby chicks forum. Maybe you could try posting this there.

    Ideal will use what ever extra chicks they have on that day. So it could literally be anything on the list of chicks they have available.

    Mine from Ideal were 5 SS Hamburgs, 5 White Cochins, 5 Buff leghorns, 5 Columbian Wyandottes, and 5 Black Lahnshans (sp?) These are actually a friend of mine, but I am raising them for her.
