My rooster is mounting but my eggs are infertile... - Page 5

post #41 of 43

Sometimes the bigger veins look like blood rings. I almost tossed one egg because it had one such vein and it hatched into a healthy chick.

Ok that's good to know! Just making sure it wasn't a blood ring...

She squats and he does not stand on her Instead the very large Polish rooster sets his feet on the ground on either side of her. He is the nicest 11 month old cockerel I've ever seen! Now, my other boys can stay AWAY from her. I'm afraid they'd kill her in an attempt to mate with her. Only my most polite roosters are permitted to reproduce. The human aggressive ones aren't permitted to live. All the others live with the goats. LOL

 

 

Seriously?!  I've never heard that one!

They actually touch vents and you've hatched eggs from this union??

 

 

Would I get in trouble if I posted a video of them? LOL

Taz is a normal sized Polish, but compared to her he is very large. Yes, they've touched vents. The bantam only lays an egg a week, so there is only one in the incubator now. When I candle the eggs in a few days I'll tell you if it's growing!

 

Well the bantam egg was not fertile. It's been about month since I saw the two together, so maybe it was just a fling. Oh, well. The six pure Polish eggs are all developing though.
