    Has anyone had fertile eggs from Cornish Cross hens? I know not many keep them long enough to see them lay eggs let along hatching any. I has 8 left in which im going to use 6 of them for the freezer. 2 I want to keep and have them with a HUGE Buff O Roo. Has anyone ever hatched eggs from them? Im going to try this spring and see what happens...

    yes fertile eggs are possible-- but the fertility and hatching rates are poor. Quite a few CX birds lay double yolkers, and for some odd reason they choose to quit laying randomly.

    read this- you could find benefit from it...
