Earlier this year I purchased some chicks for my kids. I wasn't really sure what the plan was when we got them but it has turned into such a great thing for our family. I purchased a couple of chicks labeled as "Americana" now the more I look around the more I can't figure out what I have. They are very well mannered and beautiful birds to say the least. We also purchased some Rhode Island Reds and they definitely fit the mold. We are only interested in egg laying but I'm curious to find out what they are anyways. thanks in advance.
