    I candled my broody eggs I had put 6 under her a good representation of the girls in my flock and 3 were duds for sure,one had a blood ring.The other 3 I left under her but I think they might be duds too.Will my roos get better at their job or do I need another roo?My group is about 6m old and they are banty cochins with a few mixes.I have 20 all together 2 are roos.

    Some roosters take longer than others to become fertile, especially with bantams since they (as a breed) will mature slower anyways. Give the guys some time. Patience, Grasshopper. [​IMG]
