I placed a small order with Ideal Poultry for a Christmas eve delivery. I picked them up from the Post Office today. I'm happy with the order, but there is this one thing that puzzles me. "If your order consists of a very small number of items (less than the equivalent of a quarter of a box), there may be male chicks placed in the box for warmth or comfort during shipping. The breed of chicks included varies from order to order and unfortunately we are unable to identify the breed." I ordered a dozen straight run Barred Rocks. There were 23 birds in the box! Some of the chicks are yellow, some are grey with splashes of white, some look like Barred Rock hens. I am delighted with the order and it reminded me of the line from the movie Forest Gump "...life is just like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get."
