    Okay I am looking at getting a cabinet incubator and I know alot of people that are wanting chicks. So where is the best place to buy at a cheaper price but still quailty. Some could even be mutt eggs I just have friends that want some, several, and the pet store want to start selling chicks and knew I have chickens and always ask me when I will have chicks for her. I go get my chickens crickets in the winter, I spoil them sometimes. Okay anyways any suggestions?

    Check here on the Sell, Buy, Trade Hatching Eggs. Sometimes people have testing eggs cheap. Also, EBay has large assortments of mutt/pure breed eggs all the time. Eggbid has some as well. After you get started, you could have a roo to fertilize your eggs and hatch your own. Those will cost only the price of feed you use.

    I would say to post an ad here, local classifieds, etc, or check ebay/eggbid. Some of the hatcheries sell hatching eggs, but they're probably pricier.

    If you have a amish community around and auctions go there and check them out. Or check out craigslist for someone who sells eggs and ask them if they have a rooster with the chickens. Or just take a driv out in the country and listen for a rooster. If there is a rooster there are bound to be chickens and then just ask the farmer.
