Howdy! Two questions... Will a hen lay the same shaped egg? By that I mean I have two OE pullets laying. I know that yesterday, one laid a wide, normal egg shape, and the other layed a slightly skinnier, longer egg (I watched each lay, so I know who did what, lol). Today, I found an egg of the wide shape, is it safe to assume that the same pullet laid that egg? I need to know the direct crosses of these eggs. Also, after a roo has mated with a hen, how early will the eggs be fertile? I've been told around one week. Is five days too early? I started collecting five days after the roo met his ladies for the first time, and I'm hoping it's fertile... it's a Golden Duckwing OE.
