My blue copper marans roo is 12 weeks old. I guess I hadn't realized how mature the old guy was getting. Tonight, while cracking eggs for a souffle, I noticed a whole bowl of fertilized eggs! Whoo-hoo! Go roo! That's all fine and dandy, but I had a sudden fear. I sell my eggs to regular clients. The temperature has been in the hundreds here in Texas. I know that the eggs don't start incubating until a hen sets them or they go in the bator box, but what if you, like me, LIVE in a bator box? If it's 95 or more degrees outside and humid, couldn't the fertile eggs start incubating if left in the nest box for too long even if a hen isn't on them? Please, let's discuss!
