    If they are both pure- I guess you'd have 100%. Try it![​IMG]

    If she was in the vicinity of another roo- no- you have to wait 4 weeks. Otherwise- I'd give her a couple weeks to make sure you have good fertility.

    If she's been with any other roos it will take 3-4 weeks before you can be sure her eggs were fertilized by the Marans roo and not another roo.
