    Well I know I'm getting chickens as babys I thought I knew I was buying baby chicks through mypetchicken.com but tonight I saw a show where they hatched chicks and I thought that would be even cooler because I could use it for a project (and show of my mad 'bator/chick skills!!!!!!!!!!!!) I want 4-6 chicks but I don't know what to do because I want to have them by easter so I don't have much time to decide because it takes 21 days to hatch so to get them to hatch on easter (if I buy the eggs and incubate them) I have like no time to buy and incubate before easter. PLease help I have to decide fast or it wont work

    always changing
    Try and hatch some. One year I got fertilized eggs perfect timing and they hatched on Mother's Day. It was such a special day! [​IMG]
