Nice chicks. Did yours come with the "packing peanuts" or did you purchase the extra insurance? I got mine from Ideal yesterday morning. The hatch and ship date was supposed to be 03/03. But, when I emailed Ideal that day to confirm they had shipped, they advised they had already shipped the day before on 03/02. I ordered 15, but received 25.

Looks like you got a nice variety of chicks.

Thank you! I did not get the packing peanuts. I opted instead for insurance (it was only $1.25) and asked for extra straw. I was just too worried about what I would do with a bunch of roosters!! lol. I started doubting myself after, worrying they would be too cold, but thankfully all is well. Mine hatched and shipped on the 3rd as per the shipping label. I am loving them!
