    Does any one have a good pic showing a fertile egg and the halo on the yoke? A number of weeks back I saw one on BYC but now can't find it. I would like to hatch some eggs but I can't tell if my rooster is breeding properly:rolleyes He is an EE and I put him with one EE hen and two other light Brahma hens. I will give the EE hen a rest tomorrow because we think she needs it. She also stopped laying.[​IMG] One of the Brahmas he has no trouble with. The other one is a bit hard for him to control, she will not sit still for im:confused:

    Any ideas?

    I have a young roo who is just starting to get use to the game. He has not quite figured it out yet but he is learning. Give them some time you might not always see them breed your hens. Just keep checking for fertile eggs.
