Okay. Do you know how long she's been sitting already? Her egg will take 21 days to hatch, if it was fertile and didn't die along the way. Do you have a rooster in the flock? Seems an obvious question, but you'd be surprised how many folks think all eggs are fertile and can hatch without a rooster present, so please don't be insulted by the question.
I have a beautiful pair of Golden Phoenix - got 6 eggs off of e-bay and only two
made it to maturity - luckily, it was a male and female that made it !!
now, at 6 months, there are two eggs in the nest !!!
and Proud Pappa really STRUTS HIS STUFF when the egg is laid !!
I am really torn about her first clutch of eggs - as to incubate or let
the momma hatch out her first clutch naturally.
This is a SHOW QUALITY pair of Phoenix and I would really love to have
a new brood of Goldens of the same pedigree. GreenFireFarm blood line.
now - - - -
Question #1 how many eggs could i realistically expect from her first cycle ?
or, will she lay eggs all year long like some other breeds will.
Question #2 how many eggs will she lay before she starts to sit ?
the first egg was laid on 3/16 and second egg on 3/18.
and a third one on 3/21.
So now I am thinking she will lay one egg every other day or so.
