    Ideal hatchery here in Texas,I used them because I thought less time and distance in shipping = less stress for the chicks.

    Quote:check the paperwork that came with them. Ideal has usually written down the breed/cross that was sent for peanuts.

    could you get a closer pic?

    Ideal often has an over-supply of EE roos. That would be my guess on your peanuts.

    Look like black sex-links or barred rocks.
