    Well You Can Buy Eggs From ppl on here, they are very nice and Friendly also i heard about EggBid. I use a Lil Gaint still Air incubator with eggturner. A chicken Coop Dont Have to be Fancy Just a Good Safe Enviormeant. Nest Boxs and other stuff u need Are very cheap and easy to build.

    ucheeco, Welcome to BYC. Most people who begin with this hobby start with day old chicks that you can order from a hatchery.

    Incubation of eggs is possible, however if you are new to all of this you may want to learn about raising new peeps first.

    The home page here has some good information to start with.

    Being prepared is more important than starting. I suggest you hang around, read alot, ask more questions, and learn some more cause alot of help can be found from all the members here!
