    [​IMG] I just collected these eggs and don't think they are fertile. I had two roos over breeding my hens . Gave one away a few months ago and haven't visually seen the other one breed a hen since? Do the roos slow down in winter as well? I was hoping to put some eggs in the incubator soon.

    Its hard to tell from the photo, but at least the egg on the lower left looks fertile. To be certain, try incubating a few. It can be difficult to tell for sure whether an egg is fertile or not, just by looking at the yolk.
