There is a very strong chance that the eggs are fertile.

Welsummers, mixed breed chickens, Blue Slate turkeys and a few guineas.

In wonderful Wyoming.

Thank you. Do you know how long she stays fertile after mating.

If the mating was successful there is the potential for the hen to remain fertile for the entire laying season.
