I have a bantom sitting on eggs for her first time. The problem is the rooster has been away on loan for the last 3 weeks. I presume the eggs cant be fertile so should I remove them or just let her be ?
Depends upon how long he was gone when she laid the eggs. Hens retain sperm for two weeks for sure and maybe up to four weeks. Let her set a week, candle the eggs, and if fertile allow her to complete the incubation.
