new at chickens and I've been getting mixed answers from friends, Thanks!
From what I can see, I see 5 fertile eggs.
The sixth egg could be fertile too but I cannot see very well from the pic
I see three that are infertile and two that are definitely fertile. One I can't see the blastoderm on at all, probably on the underside of the yolk.
This puzzles me, I thought I had all hens. Now I am going to have to post pictures of the chickens!
What did you find out about your "hens"?
Gary from Idyllwild Ca here
They can't be fertile, I absolutely do not have roosters
Can you post pictures of your flock? As i see some that are definitely fertile. do any of your neighbors have roosters that might be escaping?
Have you at any point had any cockerels? I've had boys as young as 10 weeks old successfully breed. And sperm can remain viable for 3 weeks, in a hen.
no. Iv'e had the girls since a day old with no boys around. All but one is laying eggs, she's a house chicken so I know she isn't fertilizing eggs.
