    You may want to get a small size waterer. Could see your waterer..... The babies often get wet in the large size ones as they stand in it and sit in it.

    I cannot tell from the set up but do they have a way to get away from the heat if they need to.

    Looks nice and clean. We use wire on the bottom of the brooder but I know lots of folks use the chips.

    Enjoy your little blessings!

    Ok... here is the math..

    the dad is 50 % amerucana and 50% fighting rooster....
    the mom is 100 % black fighting chicken...

    I cant belive it did not dawn on me to take pictures of the mom and dad..

    so that would make the chicks...

    75% figting and 25% amerucana
