The Americana 12 week old female chicken will grow up to give you an assortment of egg colors from turquoise, to olive to light brown. The Americana breed comes from the Araucana and Ameraucana mix and has different color plumage variations. It is because of this genetic combination that our birds are not meant for exhibition. These chicks have been vaccinated for Coccidiosis and Mareks and are fed started/grower crumbles. We suggest you continue with this feed until they begin to lay at 18-20 weeks. At 6 weeks old, they are mostly feathered out so they won't require a heat lamp as long as they are kept dry and out of the wind. Mailed USPS Priority Express, we do not guarantee overnight delivery, but do guarantee live arrival and 48 hour survivability.
