    I was thinking the same was hesitant cause I just put the rooster in last night! Thought it would tale a lil longer but guess he's doing his job.

    Wow! I do see a little bullseye there though! Are you planning on incubating?

    Here's a pic that is a little clearer[​IMG]but after reading a few other post it doesn't seem possible for hen to be fertile until 24-48 hours after intro to rooster.

    Hard to say, but I'd say not yet.

    Check out Speckled Hen's thread.

    Fertile or Infertile?

    Here's the photo of the INfertile that isn't showing up in the thread. Compare it to yours and the photos of the fertile ones.
