Back story: I have 17 free range chickens (14 Americaunas - 2 of which are roosters, 2 Red-Del hens and one unknown Bantam rooster). I found a "free chicks" ad on craigslist and called for them since we had room. Turns out the lady hadn't bought them yet, so she'd get what I wanted - providing they were yellow. All she wanted them for was to take Easter pictures. *sigh* I thought Buff Orpingtons would be perfect and found a feed store that was getting some in today. Here's her email to me: "I picked up 5 baby chicks today but the Orpington ones were all brown... not yellow and I specifically wanted yellow baby chick for the pictures we will be taking. So, I have 5 Ideal pullets... do you still want them or should I re-post a Craigs List ad?" So I know pullets are girls (thankfully she was willing to buy them and not straight run), but what are Ideals? Are they egg layers? Meat birds? Can anyone direct me to a picture? Thanks!
