    So I got my first egg & it was fertilised ..... I asked you guys which of my ee's was a boy ..... Apparently my ee's are girls, and I have a fertilised egg, so maybe one of my standards has been a quiet one & been fooling me all this time?

    Would one of these be a boy? My pics were coming out crappy because most of the little feathered friends were following me so closely. Every time I walk out you can practically hear them scream- FOOD & up they come running LOL, not to mention it was just beginning to get dark.

    These were the best clear pics I could get of my "girls." I have 4 more that I need to get good pics of. So as I can, I'll get more taken & loaded of the others:

    And see, these are my most "roo-ish" looking ones..... 4 to go. Thank you so much for being patient with me. When I go to lock them up for the night, I'll try to get pics of the last 4 (3 more BOS's & a RIR).

    don't know when you got your birds, but they can keep laying fertilized eggs for a while after being taken away from the roo

    Quote:Agreed - these 3 look like pullets. I went back to your EE page to see if they were really girls and after seeing them, I agree with all the others there too - your EEs are also pullets.

    Yep, those are all girls! I've never heard of it lasting 2 months...they usually say 2-3 weeks. 4 is a stretch. Maybe he was a super roo? [​IMG]

    I've heard of hens being fertile a month after not being with a roo. I wonder if 2 months is possible?
