    Erebus Chillin' With My Peeps

    I have some broodies but they aren't sitting yet because it's a bit early. I have 3 roosters and I think they are all frisky so we should have about 11 girls laying fertile eggs.
    I have a very low income and so I can't really spend much. I haven't got a brood lamp yet and I'm wondering if it's worth my while to set something up or if I should just try and support my girls when they are willing.

    Can anyone tell me how much money I'm going to need to part with if I'm trying to raise chicks indoors? I wouldn't be doing more than 3-6.

    Does cost some money feeders waters brideoder lights . Electricity I would leave the eggs with them to see what they do. It is easier letting them raise them
