    I think your packing peanuts are Barred Rocks....Not sure about the cutie yellow!

    Enjoy those babies and have a blessed evening!

    I think your packing peanuts are barred rocks too. They look just like mine. I love the little mystery chick [​IMG] Those are some neat colors. You'll have to post some more pics of it later so we can see what it becomes! Have fun [​IMG]

    I got a closer look at my mystery chic... he/she does have the 5 toes one toe on each foot is small but no feathers on its feet... is it possible that its a silkie with out feathers on its feet? does that happen?
