    Currently, I have an all silkie flock. The majority of the flock are either hens or chicks but I do have two almost-6 month old mystery chickens that could be roosters or hens. I thought this is way too young for either of them (if they are roosters) to fertilize eggs, but I cracked one today and was surprised to see a relatively large white dot... I have no known roosters in my flock so these two mystery birds are the only potential roosters so far. Here is a pic of the egg, please let me know what you think... Thanks1

    It is really kind of hard to see as the images are blurry, to tell if you have fertile eggs you will be looking for a bullseye, like the one here in the picture, as for the 2 you suspect as roosters you can take pics of them and post them on here and we can help you determine if they are or not.
