    I got my ideal order today. I got 6 barred rock pullets and 6 buff orpington pullets. They included 5 packing peanuts. I'm not sure what breed they are they are browinish with darker brown stripes down their back. They're a little smaller than my buff orps but not tiny in comparison. I guess I'll figure it out as they grown. I tried looking at chick pictures on the ideal site but gave up after I found 3 different breeds that looked like them (the only one I remember is welsummers). They're ADORABLE though. I'm happy with my order. It came quickly (the hatch date I asked for was june 2) and they are all alive and healthy! [​IMG]

    Look at some pictures of silver laced wyandottes. That's the packing peanuts that Ideal sent with my BO's about a month ago. Enjoy your babies...
