    I introduced our friends roo yesterday to our girls for the first time and I know I saw a post somewhere about this but can't find, but I was wondering how long should I wait before thinking about putting eggs in the bator?? Since I'm not in the coop 24/7, I don't know when they are mating, so does anybody have a rule of thumb as to how many days I should wait before I think some eggs are fertilized and I should try to incubate them??

    Thanks so much! [​IMG]
