    How long can a chicken be fertile for?

    I was making bread for dinner and cracked an egg and there was a distinct white bull’s-eye on the yolk… I don’t have a rooster and she hasn’t been on her old farm for one month and two days where I got her from where she was with a rooster…. Could her eggs still be fertile or whats going on? Because the post regarding fertile eggs my egg today looked like picture number three. [​IMG]

    I have read it somewhere that pea combed hens can be fertile for up to six weeks without a roo.
