I would think that your eggs should be fertile after a couple of weeks. You can always test for fertility by incubating some eggs for 4 days to a week and then candling them to see if there is an embryo developing. I am confused as to your reference to laying pellets and fertility. Laying mash/pellets does not hamper fertility; unless you are using some kind of pellet I am not familiar with.
