    I was wondering if i order 30 birds, will they stuff the extras in a 25 box or do they fill a 50 box with free males? It doesnt matter to me, i'd use them for meat anyway just wondering? Thanks

    You have to request no packing peanuts from Ideal. It's a small fee. I ordered 20 & that's what I received.
