    If the town I am in does not allow chickens to be raised in your backyard, is it illegal to incubate chickens inside your own home?

    Look at county ordinances. Call animal control.

    Until they hatch, you are not keeping chickens, you are slow cooking eggs.

    What are your plans for when they are done slow-cooking and you actually do have illegal chickens?

    You guys are too funny. Craigslist has gotten me more customers than I even know what to do with right now. So many people want different types of 1 day old chicks. I dont know what to do! lol
