    Got these this morning from Ideal as packing peanuts. What are they?

    **the chipmunky looking ones are the ones I don't know what are. All others are accounted for. They are not bantams and do not have feathered feet.**

    I think they like to send EEs as peanuts. Do they have puffy cheeks?
    Really- there are lots of possibilities. So cute!

    I was thinking maybe EE but their cheeks aren't real fluffy, not like I would have thought. I've never had an EE chick so I don't really know.....they aren't any fluffier than the RIR chicks cheeks.

    yeah, they're cute, just don't know what I'm going to do with all these males. I'm overrun already. I wouldn't mind them if they'd put some pullets with them.....shoot, I'd even pay the extra.

    I'm not sure...puffy cheeks make me think EE.

    As for the packing peanuts, put them on craigslist for free when they're about 2-3 weeks old. They go like wildfire [​IMG]

    not all EE's have puffy cheeks aka tuffs/beards. Not all packing peanuts are male but most are. Wait till you can tell better.

    What color are their legs? Greenish would be ee's but sometimes they do have yellow. Maybe brown leghorns? That's my guess~

    I see little orange legs, probably will be yellow. The striped ones could be Brown Leghorn, Partridge Rock or Wyandotte, Golden-laced Wyandotte or Barnvelder maybe even Wellsummers. Lot of possibilties.
