If you are a newbie to raising chickens, we do not recommend starting your adventure with a fertile egg. Instead, we recommend ordering live chicks because it simplifies your project and gives you a higher likelihood of success.

A brooder is a small pen designed to protect, warm, feed and water your newly born chicks until they are strong enough to survive on their own. Basically, a brooder takes the place of a broody hen who under normal circumstances would be responsible for taking care of her clutch.
