    Yesterday was supposed to be hatch day. Nothing hatched. Turns out all the eggs were infertile. There was no sign that any embryo ever started to develop. I have seven hens and one rooster. All the eggs should have been fertile. I have seen the rooster do his thing. But this hatch was 100% failure. Do roosters loose their reproductive genes or whatever, when the weather gets hot? Anyone else ever have this problem?

    I had a batch hatch out just a month earlier with 100% success.

    Any comments?

    Did you candle them or anything to see if they had anything growing in them?

    It could easily be that he just didn't do his thing enough this go round
