    I have a silkie hen who is setting on 6 eggs and she has been sitting from approximatly April 8. I candelled the eggs last night and i was hoping someone could tell me if the were fertilized. I can see a shadow in the eggs but i thought that was just the yolk but then some of the eggs didnt have the shadow so i was confused, any input appreciated!
