Quote:If you are looking at their white leghorns, try the Ideal 236. It is a mix of some kind that they have. We had several of the leghorns and just one 236. Needless to say I couldn't stand the flightiness of the ones and gave all but one true leghorn and one 236 away. The 236 is much more socialble. Talk about laying machines. I've just ordered from them and received 14 chicks when I ordered 10. I suspect 1 for a male and the others I'm not sure if they are extra's or males for warmth. We'll just have to see. I ordered from them about 2 years ago and they sent a TON of males for warmth. I haven't lost a chick in transit yet. I don't want to jinks myself but I haven't lost a chick or chicken from illness yet either. All have been predators except for one roo that had turn criminal and we had to expose of ourselves. As far as Ideal, I have nothing but praise for them so far. Hope that helps I did order an Ideal 236 and a Leghorn also. So what you posted is very interesting to me. I'm just wondering how in the world i'm going to tell which is which. I guess I'll be posting pics on here asking that question.
