Give VM public IP address

How'd I give each VM it's very own public IP address?
I have DIA from my DC

I'm trying to avoid NAT and would like for each VM to go to IP chicken and have it's own IP address

What type of router/switch would I need to use
What do you mean? Routing your traffic from the host to the individual VMs has nothing to do with external routers/switches. You will have to configure you PVE host such that it forwards traffic to the VMs as shown in the example in the docs.
