    How do you know that they are infertile if they have not been incubated? If they have been incubated, you are not going to eat them are you?

    The majority of them are the laying hens and there is no roo in with them and the rest have been candled to see if there is any development
    The Marans have just Thursday been introduced to their roo. we keep all the hens in the laying pen until we feel they are ready to breed.
    only once have we miss candled one of the dark eggs and got a blood spot, we learned to crack each individualy to prevent any misshaps [​IMG]
