    The eggs should be fertile within a month. I would no expect a young pullet to set right away. Mostly older hens will set, but not all breeds.
    If your incubating the eggs, you can set a few now and run a fertility test, but I would wait at least a month or more after first eggs to set.

    Good luck!

    If you have a young rooster and less than 20 hens, I'm thinking all your eggs are fertile.
