Look out...dumb question coming at you. I have a California White hen who has been laying for about 2 months. She used to be a free ranger, but after our other hen was hit by a car in November..we decided to put her in the portable pen that my husband built for the roosters until spring when we can build a bigger coop. We have an Americana (at least that's what we were told he was) and a black silkie rooster. I watched closely because I was afraid that they would bother her too much...but they didn't. Now the problem. We would like to try to hatch some eggs in the spring. I have looked at all the pictures of fertile eggs on here and none of her eggs appear to be fertile. In fact, I have only ever seen the silkie chasing her around a few times (and I've never seen him catch her). Is it possible that neither of the roosters is mating with her? They are together 24/7 and it's only the 3 of them in the pen. There pen is plenty big enough for the 3 of them. We have a ramp that opens so that they can be down in the grass during the day. It just seem strange to me. When we had our turken hen...I could see that hers were fertilized...but no sign with these.
