    If they mated in the last week they can be fertile for a week or more, how I understand poultry fertility.

    It sure would be nice to have a descendant of his incubated. Of course I could end up with all females, which is ok. The problem is if the eggs are all drakes. I would love to have just one drake only, and if I order them I could ensure that.
    Ok I will just allow the ladies to stock pile the eggs just in case. I go on vacation this coming week for five days.

    That’ll give me time to think about it.

    Save the eggs and search your feelings. Odds are all the eggs wouldn't hatch anyway, so depending on how many you get it might be worthwhile to incubate them all if you decide to go that route. You just have to figure out what you'd do with extra boys.
