    We recently got 4 roosters and added them to our flock of hens . How long before their eggs are fertilized ?

    How recent is recently? 2 days? 1 week? If they are mating the hens you should start seeing some fertile eggs.

    You should have fetile eggs. Crack a few open and look for the bullseye on the yolk.
