Well, we just went down to our local feed store and bought 9 chicks. They came in today from Ideal. We got 5 Ameraucanas and 4 Dominques. My husband is building a brooder and in the meantime, I have them in a plastic box with my desk lamp and a saucer of water and a dish of food. They are all sleeping under the warm light right now and seem pretty happy! We are on our way!
