    My babies just arrived today from IDEAL.....
    EVERYONE happy and full of energy .... THANKS IDEAL !!!!

    I have a question about the BLACK MALES that were added for warmth to my order:

    Does anyone know what breed it is?

    I need to give the BLACK extras away ..... FREE if anyone lives in So. Cal and wants to pick them up....I live in Santa Clarita.

    If I can't give them away here, I will advertise on Craigs List or ask a local Feed Store if they want them .... just so I look like I know what I am talking about, I would like to know what BREED these Black ones are ...... if no reply here, I'll just try to call IDEAL in the morning.

    My babies are:
    6 white FRIZZLES
    6 red FRIZZLES
    straight run .... [​IMG]

    I'll need to get rid of the boys, once I know who is who .... [​IMG]

    Enjoy the photo !

    My kids and I are LOVING our new babies !!!!!!!

    if they have a yellow spot on their head, they are barred rocks, and if they don't they could be australorps(sp)?
  3. yea, probably astrulorps or barred rocks, or 1 of each. they aren't being to generous with their "rare" roos any more it seems. used to give you cool polish and other crazy looking things

    Quote:Yes, when the first one went to sleep, all stretched out, he/she did look dead to me too .... I thought, "Oh no! I've lost one" .... but then someone stepped on him/her and it opened its eyes......

    crazy little guys .... just step all over each other ... no consideration for their sleeping buddies at all !!! [​IMG]

    aww. There so cute, I didn't know that chicks came in orange. [​IMG]
    The black chicks are Austrolorps.

    Did Ideal send the chicks to your P.O. for you to pick up?

    I was thinking about getting some D'uccles from them, but also considered batoring some eggs.

    From what I can see in the pic, they look to be australorps. Good luck!

    I used my street address. When the box of babies arrived, the local Post Office Sorting/Holding Office called me and had me come pick the box up there. This was not my closest, local Post Office ..... it is their Sorting Office.

    I walked in the door, and immediately heard the chirps.
    The box was packed so nicely with a straw type bottom and one side had the same straw type stuff.

    I think the prices at IDEAL are so reasonable ..... good luck with the D'uccles ....


  10. they look like barred rocks or australorps
