To tell if your eggs are fertile you need to crack some eggs open and look for the bulls-eye. I just plan on having an egg for breakfast and break open the egg in a small bowl and look for the bulls-eye. If the boys are young they may be shooting blanks. They may need some practice. Usually when you first notice them mating in about 3 weeks most of the eggs should be fertile. It takes awhile for the male to get in gear in the beginning.
