    would they pack packing peanuts with bantams? If they do would there be a greater chance for pullets because they cant sex bantams?

    I believe that most packing p-nuts are roos... sexlinks & leghorns are a norm. [​IMG]

    Will hatcheries leave out the peanuts if you specify that you absolutely do not want them?

    Quote:In some hatcheries they do, you ask them to not include them and they wont, but in some you dont get the option. But I think that if you request you should be able to opt out of packing peanuts on all of them.
