    All 12 were suposed to be hens but I got a fertaized egg today and I am trying to guess the Roo. What can I look for? I know that roos and hens can both heve spurs. Atleast 4 of them are getting spurs. No one crows yet and this one has the floppiest face. I am stumped????? Oh and all are goldenbuffs. I know the males are suposed to be white and none are. But who fertalized the egg. We have wild turkey in our woods but I never saw a wild chiken. [​IMG]

    Hen.

    Are you saying the egg was fertilized b/c you got a bullseye? If so, that's not a 100% reliable indicator. So, if this is hte most roo-ish bird you have, then you probably have all hens.

    A round circle with a little yellow circle around it and then another circle around that Looked like a bullseye to me. But I am new at this and I have been researching all day. [​IMG]
    And the yolk was a little darker then the other 5 eggs.

    I do have one that has a tail feather that seems to be growing in sticking straight up in the air.
