    Does anyone know if you can tell if an egg is fertile before going into the incubator? I know the rooster isn't breeding all my hens but I'm not sure which hen laid which egg.

    Not unless you break the egg open.

    That's what I thought too but I seen a few people say there's a way when I Google it. I'll just stick to candling on day 8.
    Thanks!
