Finding a chicken breeder
To help you find a local breeder - we have prepared a recommended breeder list which you can view here. If you can't find the breed of chicken you want then it is worth looking in your local paper, ebay, craigslist or buying a copy of a popular poultry magazine. When buying hatching eggs it is important to buy from a breeder with a good reputation. It is also worth purchasing eggs from a breeder local to you as shipping eggs can reduce the chances that the eggs will hatch.

How much should you pay for a fertilised egg?
The price of a fertilised egg varies from breed to breed. The most expensive eggs tend to be for rare breeds and breeds that lay only a few eggs. The price of eggs is normally between £0.80 - £2.00 per egg. Most breeders will sell you a half dozen eggs.
