We cracked our very first egg this morning and I think the egg was fertile. It is hard to tell if any of the hens have gone broody, but I suspect not as they all got out of the coop and stayed out for a while... If they go broody do they just keep on laying eggs to add to the batch? If they have a batch how come they still all hatch around the same time?? I know, I know, I'm a city girl I really have never seen this all before!
