    I think it's whatever they have "extra of" or whatever they feel like? They don't keep a record--it's just whatever ends up in there. Pictures would probably help...how old is the chick?

    I got SLW roos as peanuts in my order from Ideal. I asked them and they said they try to make the peanuts all the same breed

    I called Ideal after I received my order. They said they are either Rhode Island Red or Production Red They are a light brown

    Hope this helps.

    I guess it has been a while since hatched my RIR in November that I had forgot what they looked like..I like the RIR so happy about that..but already got my two roosters saved back to fertilize the hens so guess they will be Sunday Dinner sometime..Thanks all..
