    There is only one way to find out. And it is not a good idea to incubate first eggs. Things go awry with the genetics. Wait til she has been laying for about a month.

    Quote:Sorry , I disagree, there are two ways to find out. 1 incubate 2. Break the egg and check the blastoderm. (When I find pictures I'll post pictures showing fertilized and unfertile eggs.)
