I have a broody, and I would like to get her some babies. Since our flock fertility rate is ridiculously low, I will have to get her either baby chicks or eggs. Pro's and con's for each? Eggs (pro's) I would know what I was getting was from a breeder. Broody would be able to hatch them out herself. I would get to watch chicks hatch, always fun! Eggs (con's) Shipped eggs Possibility of a lot of roosters. She might quit, its her first time as a broody, after all. $$$ There may not be eggs available in the breeds I am looking for. Chicks (pro's) Pre-sexed. Chicks (con's) Less of a variety from breeders. The one "breeder" who sells chicks here can't even spell right, which is worrisome. Wouldn't a real breeder be able to spell the names of their breeds? Chicks may be flighty, as chicks hatched by someone else usually are. So, anyone have any ideas as to what I should do?
