We are excited and just hope the eggs are fertile.... We wanted to try to hatch some eggs this spring but our broody hen was killed by a neighbor dog and none of the others seemed interested so we went and bought some chicks. Well last week we got rid of our rooster and a couple days after he was gone our little game hen has decided to sit on the eggs that were in there. (I think he was chasing them out any time they tried to sit on them) A few in there had been left from when we had our roo but the rest are from after he left. I read somewhere that they hold the sperm inside them for a little while so is it possible the new eggs will be fertile? She started just sitting on them for a little while each day but the last few days she has been on them most of the day and only gets off at night when I go out to check their feed and water. She ruffled her feathers made a horrible noise when one of the chicks went near her and the nest last night when we had them out to play! So we are very hopefull... what do you think our chances are?
