    Quote:If your roo is active they probably are fertile. Are you going to incubate them? I have 3 hens and all of my eggs have been fertile. My hens range in age and the roo is 5 months old. I have them in my incubator. Maybe your asking if the hen will lay on them...that I don't know. I am sure someone does know.

    Well they are pretty cold and I dont have the money to buy a incubator was thinking on going to the feed store and buying a heat lamp and put in a small box for now but now the chickens are making alot of noise so I might put them back in there
