If my hen is with her roo 24/7 would it be safe to assume that all the eggs she lays are fertile?
I guess it depends on whether or not he mates with her. He may think he is a hen and not a roo
Probably a pretty good assumption. Do you know how to tell the difference between a fertile egg and an infertile egg when cracked into a dish? You could watch eggs that you're cooking for a few days to see how many are actually fertile.
Quote:That's exactly how I keep track of fertility. I just look at the white spot on the yolks, in my eggs that I use for cooking, and see if it's a blastderm or a blastodisc. Pretty much every egg I open is fertile, so I figure it'll be no problem to hatch a few when I want to.
