    Where do you live? I actually had some Ameraucanas that just hatched yesterday, but we may be far apart.

    Congratulations on getting new chicks.

    I have a suggestion for you. You should put small rocks or marbles in the waterer for the first week. The chicks sometimes fall asleep while they are getting a drink. If they do they can drown. It does happen.
