    Wow! That's a lot of extra packing peanuts. Bet you'll fall in love with them too -- now, how do you decide who to keep? Keep them all?

    Hope you've got a bigger coop than you thought you'd need. [​IMG]

    I ordered from Ideal.. I know there are 2 partridge colored, a couple of Buffs, black and a couple I have no idea on. 2 of them looks like the Dark Brahmas' color..

    Its a wait and lets see what we get.. I hope maybe they sexed a few wrong and they would be hens instead of roosters.. OK I know wishful thinking..

    I think I would have to name one of them "Peanut"....I hadn't heard of peanut packing before coming to BYCF...It's better than throwing them in a dumpster....I'm a roo fan myself...so it upsets me to hear when people toss them...Good luck they are very adorable!!! (I'm also nuts (pun intended) about cochins!)
