Additional Resources

If you aren’t able to find a hatchery near you with the chicks you want, you can always use an online hatchery.

Online hatcheries are really convenient. You can place an order with a few clicks, and you’ll have some new chicks on their way to you within days.

The only downside is that you can’t see them in person, and you won’t have a local contact.

Here are a couple of the online hatcheries I recommend checking out:

Cackle Hatchery – I’ve used Cackle before and only have good things to say about them. Top-notch customer service, a huge range of chicken breeds, other poultry, and other accessories. I recommend checking them out.

Stromberg’s Chickens – Stromberg’s is another online hatchery with a huge range of chicks and other backyard chicken-related goods to browse.

Things to Look for When Buying Chicks

If you are visiting hatcheries and farms in your area to pick up chicks in person, here are a few things to look out for:

Always check your local laws regarding how many chicks you can keep and any other restrictions.

Call around and visit a hatchery you’re interested in, check they are operating like a professional business that you’re happy to buy from.

Check the condition of your chicks before taking them away. Look for any signs of dirt, mites, labored breathing, etc.

Ask the seller about vaccinations, their advice for caring for them when you take them home, whether they’re NPIP, etc.

Basic Kit and Equipment You’ll Need

Here are some of the basic things you’ll need to be prepared for your new chicks:

A chicken brooder – A brooder is a heated enclosure for baby poultry. Baby chicks need somewhere warm and safe as they develop for those important first few weeks.

Food – There are various brands all offering start feeds for baby chicks.

Water – Baby chicks need access to fresh drinking water at all times, you can use a nipple or shallow waterer.

Warmth – New baby chicks need to be kept at around 95 degrees. This can be dropped 5 degrees per week until they’re old enough to no longer need heat.

Space – Good living conditions are essential for chicks to grow up happy and healthy. If you’re buying a brooder, it should recommend the maximum number of chicks it holds. Otherwise, aim for at least half an sq ft of space per chick.
