    Any suggestions on a good reliable hatchery for eggs? I'm new to the whole incubating game but my 5yr old and I would like to give it a shot. Thought about building a coolerbator!!!

    There are hatchery reviews etc here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/16/chicken-breeders-hatcheries

    And if you'd like to buy eggs from another BYC member, check out this BST section: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/36/chicken-hatching-eggs

    I would go for the second option first, you may find someone close to you that you can purchase eggs from and maybe eliminate the need to have them sent through the mail, which could mess egg up a bit and reduce their hatchability.

    Best of luck with your future hatch!
