    I have 2 salmon faverolle and this 1 black silkie for a flock. Everyone is saying that my egg from my salmon faverolle is fertilized... well this pretty much leaves me wondering which one of my birds is a roo! I only have the 3. There are no other chickens in the area (I live in the city city). I am 100% sure that my smaller combed Salmon Faverolle is the laying bird. The other two haven't produced any eggs. No one crows. Never seen anyone do any mounting. No one is missing feathers either. I got the salmon faverolle as sexed day old chicks. The silkie was from a breeder and she said that was about 60/40 pullet. I got them all the very first week of June so they are all a little over 6 months old.....

    So here are my birds... can anyone help?
    *also included was the photo which people are telling me the egg to the left is fertile (naturally I took the photo thanks to the blood spot in the egg on the right*

    24059031 file is my laying girl... I know its her because she's the only one that uses that part of the coop (neither of the other two are willing to go up the ramp) and all eggs are always there.

    The Faverolles are definitely female.

    You have all pullets! Actually, the Salmon with the bigger, redder, comb would be your layer. The other one should be coming along soon. Those eggs aren't fertile. I don't know what would make somebody think it was.

    Look up on the web, 'fertile egg' it will show you a little circle with a white ring around it.

    So basically what someone did was take the left yolk black and white it and sent it back to me. Saying that the circle around the circle was a fertile egg and a few people agreed with them.

    I was like what no?! I have all girls!!! So then I doubted.....

    *here is the edit they sent me*

    Weird -Somebody thinks they are funny - not me. A little blood spot would not indicate a fertile egg either.

    Your beautiful girls look like girls to me especially the silkie.
