    Also with the eggs be fertile? They seem happy living together. 2 male and 3 hens.

    Your eggs should be fertile and your birds should be expected to start laying when the weather warms up. Mines are expected to start laying within the next month or two.

    Thank you very much. I plan to incubate my eggs. I have incubated chickens,ducks and Italian quail from eggs I have bought. This will be the first time from my own eggs. So it's a bit new for me. And hatching Californian quail..
