New Chicks!

The chicks I ordered should be ready today, they just hatched yesterday.  These new chicks are Ameraucanas an actual breed not a hybrid egg producer that I have now.  Ameraucanas lay blue eggs!  Although I have been reading about them and many people sell Easter Eggers as Ameraucanas, the Easter Eggers do lay blue eggs but are "Mutts" that are crossed with Ameraucanas and other brown egg layers so the eggs could be any shade of blue to green to olive in color.  That's ok, I really just want some blue eggs.  They also come in all different colors so I'm really excited to see what I get.
