    Can I assume if I have a roo and 8 hens that most of their eggs are fertile?

    x2. And you can do a fertility check each time you have eggs for breakfast. After you crack the egg, take a good look at the yolk. On the yolk will be a small white spot. If the white spot is just a circle, the egg isn't fertile. If the white spot is a circle with a spot in the center (bullseye) the egg is fertile. Good luck!
