 I  got a silkie for Christmas last year, he was supposed to be a girl but now crows very early in the Moring. Then I was given a

 

bantam cross silkie by one f my dads friends (she was his last chicken left) and now she has laid egg, she lays them every second

 

day. So far she has lain 5 in total but I gave two to my dogs because my dad said the probably weren't fertilized. she has lain another

 

three but I don't want to give these to my dogs ( she had me in tears because she was going to lay and egg again but I thought she

 

was looking for her eggs)  My roosters name is mango and he is not quite 6 months yet, I will be on the 22 of may, and my hen is

 

berry but I have no idea how old she is.  He is quite  " quite friendly" but he is very clumsy. Do you think the eggs are fertile?

 

she doesn't sit on them as much as I know. Do you think I must leave them or should I incubate them?

 

 

 

 

Thanks you for any replies I really want another baby chicken they are soooooo cute!!!!!

:welcome  Do an on site search on 'bulls eye fertility'.  Type this in the search bar at the top of the page and conduct the search.  Allow her to build a clutch (just leave the eggs), and she will very likely set on them when she is ready.  Good luck.
