hen just started brooding need some advice

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hen just started brooding read a lot of posts on this and answered a lot of questions except one. If my eggs aren't fertile will she stop on her own or do I need to brake the habit?

 

I do have a rooster so there might be chances that they are fertile just very unsure.

 

Thanks in advance!

If the eggs are not fertile (hopefully your rooster has done his job) the hen will be unable to tell.  Candle them after 7 to 10 days and determine whether or not they are developing.  Good luck.

Some will, but many will continue to set until they are in bad physical condition.  Why do you think that your eggs might not be fertile?
