    Why are incubation eggs as much or more expensive than just getting the chicks? That's what I've been finding. I'm new to all this so this my be a stupid question.

    The more expensive eggs are from hard to find varieties and often are from very good quality parent stock...unlike most of the chicks you'll get from the hatcheries.
