    Will I get extra chicks from my pet chicken if I only ordered 8 chicks? I have read that a lot of people get packing peanuts. Do you think i will be getting some extras? I just want to be prepared.

    Yes you will get extras. And they will probably be roos.

    I don't know if mypetchicken puts packing peanuts in since they include a heating device with their orders. Email and ask 'em!

    I don't think My Pet Chicken uses packing peanuts. That's why you pay so much more for shipping, they use heating packs.

    Quote:We do not include "packing peanut" chicks with our orders. Occasionally we'll include an extra chick, but it will always be of the same breed and gender as other chicks in the order. You can find more information about our shipping process here, http://www.mypetchicken.com/How-can-so-few-chicks-arrive-at-their-lo-H1.aspx and http://www.mypetchicken.com/How-come-you-can-t-ship-just-one-chick--H12.aspx?
