    Ive heard that hatchery's sometimes send "Packing Peanuts" in addition to your order of chicks....

    So what are Packing Peanuts? I was thinking (If my mom let me! [​IMG] ) Or maybe ordering a few chicks from Ideal (Since its in Texas) and wondered what Packing Peanuts are.... Can anyone brief me on this?


    Thanks [​IMG]

    Extra Males for warmth. Since you are in TX and we are almost at the 100 degree mark, you most likely won't get any. But you never know! [​IMG]
