    There were 6 of these chicks included in my order from Ideal Poultry for warmth in my silkie order but I have no clue what they are (and they can't tell me)

    They are larger than my silkies, are black, and have white on their bellies and heads. Unlike my silkies, they do not have feathered feet. Any ideas?

    Could be a Barred Rock. And 90%+ of the packing peanuts will be roosters.

    Looks like a Barred Rock and like stated above most packing peanuts are Roosters.
