    I've heard that the eggs can be fertile for up to two weeks after just one time of them getting together.
    My eggs are always fertile but we eat them anyhow.

    the eggs can be up to one week after fertilization fertilized. I know because these nice men taught me how to artificially inseminat my hens since i show then and do not want the roos to break there feathers:)
