    I have a 3 year old banty that has never sat on her eggs...well shes been missing for about 3 weeks now and I finally found her sitting on some eggs in a dog house. Does she know if the eggs r fertile or not?

    Yes I do have a old english banny roo, but the hen only goes in the coop once in a while, she kinda hangs by herself out side of the coop cuz all the full sized chickens r mean to her,shes been fine for 3 years,she lives in the potting shed. Shes just free range all the time. But I guess it only takes once! [​IMG]
