I am currently having a broody hen sit on a egg for me for 5 days to see if i have a rooster or a hen in my coop (that's the 'it').


I thought that if I left a egg under my wyandotte (broody one) for a week it would start to develope enough for me to see if the eggs I were collecting were fertilized.

To put a long story short I want chicks and I am trying to convince my mum to let me, and finding out if i have a rooster is one of the mandatory fundamentals


I am hoping to have a rooster, because that would send me a step in the right direction!!!


So basically I am calling on the BYC members that have candled fertilized eggs before, and possibly may have pictures of the eggs from the days up to day 5-6.

Thankyou!!! Mucho appreciated!!!

I'm not sure if I understand...you don't know if you have a rooster?
Maybe you could just post a pic of your birds and we could tell you if you have a roo?
