If you can’t find a local hatchery to get out to and pick up some chicks, ordering online is the next best thing.
In fact, a lot of people order chicks online as it’s super convenient and you’ll likely find the exact breed you’re looking for.
If you’re looking for a rare breed or a breed that lays an unusual color egg you’ll probably have to look online. Either way, take a browse through their categories and see if something takes your fancy.
Cackle Hatchery – Prices start at just a couple of bucks, and with more than 200 varieties in stock you’re spoiled for choice. They also stock all the equipment you’ll need to raise a backyard flock.
Stromberg’s Hatchery – Based in Hackensack, MN, Stromberg’s is another hatchery with a wide range of breeds, types of poultry, and equipment.
McMurray Hatchery – I’ve heard a lot of good things about McMurray Hatchery, so I’m happy to recommend them. Plus, I’ve just noticed on their site they have some French Black Copper Marans, anyone for chocolate brown color eggs!?
What You Need to Know When Caring for Baby Chicks
Caring for chicks is exciting and fun! They are fragile for those first few weeks though and need some special care and attention.
It’s not difficult, don’t panic. Here is the basic equipment you’ll need and the basics you need to know about how to care for baby chicks.
Where to house baby chicks? You’ll need a brooder. A brooder is a small enclosed housing area and typically comes with a heat lamp.
Providing warmth – The reason why brooders come with heat lamps is that chicks need to be kept around 90-95 degrees for the first week. You can then taper this off by 5 degrees a week until they’re 6 weeks old or so.
Drinking water – Chicks need drinking water available at all times. You can pick up a waterer to do this, which is a device that holds water and is easily accessible by little chicks.
Food – For the first 8 weeks, all you need to feed chicks is a starter feed. This will provide all the nutrition they need to grow and develop into mature chickens.
