    Here is my question how long can the hens stay fertile without a drake i just recently got a new drake but before that they were without for almost 2 months and when i break open the egg some have blood spots and most of them have the bullseye is there any way possible that they are still fertile?? im confused

    How long have you had the new drake? I think 4 weeks is about avarage for length of fertility.
