    Hi all I just received my order from Ideal this morning along with my 7 packing peanut males and 6 surprise pullets. Can you help me identify the breeds. Thanks!

    I got 7 packing peanuts, I am thinking they are barred rocks, but not sure. Any Guesses?

    I also got 6 surprise pullets: Any guesses? I don't have a clue!
    # 1
    [​IMG]
    #2- single comb
    [​IMG]
    #3 and #1 are probably the same breed
    [​IMG]
    #4- very small
    [​IMG]
    #5- big fluffy and bright lemon color
    [​IMG]
    #6 I am pretty sure is a Buff Orpington, she's in the second to the right of the group picture
    Here's a group shot of the surprise pullets

    Thanks for your help.

    I'd say your packing peanuts are BR or Doms.

    Do Dom's have a single comb? These do.

    Any guesses about the surprise pullets?​

    Are you sure those are six surprise pullets? (I mean the ones with the purple dots painted on their heads? ) Sometimes they're roosters.......when they mark them......

    No, Doms have rose combs. You probably have Barred Rock roosters. [​IMG]

    The really little one with the speckled face is seriously cute. Are you sure that all those packing peanuts are male? I don't have any reason to think otherwise... but they look like my Barred Rock hen when she was a wee baby.

    I know you are all excited -- they are all very cute.
