Tips on growing chestnuts?

Prior to the covid19 social distancing order in Kansas @39thparallel gifted me with these beautiful stratified chestnuts. Anyone have tips on what a guy should do with a bag full of chestnuts? Pot them up? Direct seed? How fragile are the roots?

I just potted them 5-6 to a 5 gal bucket. The fear is mice or squirrels will dig up the nuts for a nice snack. I covered half with chicken wire.
