When should I buy and hatch eggs? I'm in northern PA so winter is cold.

I have a lot of space inside and could put them in one of the guest rooms in my basement.

If I want the to lay sometime in the spring should I start now?
Hey! It’s best if you wait for spring because the cockerels are more active in spring and summer so the chances of the eggs being fertile are a lot greater.

I could be misunderstanding, but...
Are you saying you would keep your chickens in your basement?
No, no, no.
Don’t do that.
If I AM misunderstanding, sorry.
You can hatch chicks whenever.
Doesn‘t change the fact that half will be roosters.

I think they mean just for the brooding period. Lots of people do that
