    Hey y’all.
    So I ordered 7 pullets from Ideal Poultry hatchery and idiotically chose to have them send some males to keep them warm. Silly me didn’t know the box fits 25 birds - I thought they’d send like max 5 males. I got 13. I know it’s their policy and I could have checked no, so there’s nothing either of us can do.

    I’m interesting in maybe keeping one or two, but around where I live there’s an auction every third Thursday apparently and they’d take the rest of the males. Anyone know what breed these guys are? If you need better pictures let me know. These guys are rambunctious and noisy lol

    I'm thinking dark and partridge Brahmas.

    OMG! Did you order your chicks on April Fool's Day or something??? Or your ex works there, and thought, "Heh heh heh! I'll show HER!"

    Wow. 13. Super lucky for you!

    (I have no idea on the breed, but I appreciate the chuckle I got from your post. Good luck)

    Docile, I can walk over and pick mine up. They don't fight....you may want to keep a big one. They get giant up to 12# plus and beautiful. Mature slow, takes about two years.

    Post them on the website, if any BYC member local wants them, come get them......just an idea

    I've heard two stories like this. I might just order from Ideal sometime to get some free freezer camp occupants.

    They are very docile. Super sweet demeanor. I had two Brahma cockerels in with 4 other roosters. They never picked a fight with anybody and literally followed me around like I was their mother.

    They get huge though. Basically like turkeys, but not turkeys.
