    So my very first order will be here around April 16th, but our local feed store had some extra ameraucanas in, so of course I couldn't say no. Plus a black australorp came home too. How long do the need probiotics? And can they have dried worms or grass from my yard?

    I don't use probiotics, only a chick starter. I put mine out on grass as soon as temperatures allow, and after about 2 weeks I give them sod clumps to dig around on. They won't eat grass. You can offer spinach or dandelion greens after 2 weeks, otherwise I only feed scrambled eggs as a treat until they are older than 8 weeks. It's more important that they eat their starter.
