    I have a guess but I'm interested to hear for sure! They are full-sized chickens, not bantys, even tho you may notice some bantam chicks in the background. Smooth-legged.

    Yay! That was my guess!! [​IMG]

    Thank you! I wanted another opinion since I came to that conclusion just looking at chick photos on-line.

    Where did you order from? And do the "peanuts" come free to keep the ones you actually ordered warm?

    Yes, they were sent for warmth with my last order of day-old chicks from the Ideal hatchery. [​IMG] My husband thinks it's awful that I call them 'packing peanuts' but that's all I could think of! [​IMG]

    Maybe next spring I will have to order from Ideal (I want some Barred Rocks) and maybe I'll get some "peanuts" too

    Quote:that pretty cool. I could handle a few freebies, just to see what I end up with. And if I didn't want to keep them for myself, I could probably find someone to trade or give them to on here. Now I just have to wait for spring (Or another coop).
