I have a Blue Asian Male And Female. (shes a wonderful layer) I currently have them separated. She is starting to lay regular single yolk eggs (been laying for 3 months)so i was gonna put the two together so's to have incubator eggs for my sister. My question is . . ..DRUM ROLL>.......How long do they need to be "together" before i know the eggs are fertile and how do i store them till they go into the incubator? I am in V.a so its not cold at night (55+)and the days are in the 80s . Can i leave them on the counter or do they need more attention ? My sister blessed me with 3 bantams that i have grown to love .She loves egg producers and i have a wonderful parent stock . I just have no clue what to do or when HELP!!
