How long after they left the roo will the eggs be fertile?

    Just picked my latest two pekin pullets. They are both over a year old and laying, although I'm expecting the stress of the move to reduce egg numbers for a few days at least. How long after they've been taken away from the roo will they still be laying fertile eggs? We don't have any boys (we have awkward neighbours instead [​IMG]) and we're thinking it would be a shame to waste fertile eggs.

    Though I have no experience on this, I have read up to three weeks.
