I have 8 of these little cuties but I’m not sure what they are... 279EB653-8179-45BB-BCBC-8E1A692592D9.jpeg EF017485-5056-4543-A0CE-16FFC531D2CB.jpeg

Looks like Rhode Island Reds to me, or at least some sort of red. The only red chicken breed I’ve ever owned is RIR, and that’s exactly what they looked like when they were little.
Adorable little chick btw :love

I'm confused by that statement, can you explain?
Packing peanuts are male chicks added to the order and in the shipping box if an insufficient amount or no insurance and heat packs for warmth.

Basically, the extra chicks are males for the hatchery to get rid of and provide more warmth for the ordered chicks.
