Sarurday 12/13/15 we found 7 fresh eggs my hen laid. She's been laying 1 egg everyday since then. (I've been writing the dates on them). I think it may too early to tell if they are fertile since I try looking (candleing) and don't seem to see anything. I was going to give it til this coming up Saturday to check again. In the mean time I have the eggs under a heat lamp. Now my questions are: If the eggs I have are not fertil am I still able to eat them if I have them under a heat lamp? And also should I even put them under a heat lamp or should I just let my hen lay on them? Last but not least how often are they suppose to lay on the eggs? Sorry for all the questions but I can't seem to find the answer in any of my books.
