Fertile eggs? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
You really can't sell eggs as fertile, if you haven't actually hatched out any chicks from your eggs. Maybe give some eggs to someone who has an incubator, so you can verify fertility. I am assuming you don't watch you chickens 24 hours a day? Lol, you won't always see you rooster mating all of the hens! He probably is!!

Best of luck!

Why not if you can see that they've started developing? I know no one locally... Well no but they always say no when he approached them to mate so I don't see why that should change when I'm not around

I'm not sure about their behaviour, but you do need to incubate a batch of eggs to verify that they are fertile. Otherwise be prepared to refund people if they buy your eggs and none are fertile. That is a standard practise!

I see, but then why do people say that the bulls eye is a test for fertile eggs, if it doesnt mean the egg is 100% fertile? if it is 100% fertile it is just as good as incubating a few eggs...
