    Hey there, ive got 2 muscovey hens, that havent been with a male for almost 2 months now. Bothgirls have been laying eggs for the last few months, but havent been sitting. Now ive got 1 female that is sitting on her eggs. She has made up a cozy lil nest of grasses, straw and her feathers in the cornwr of a covered coop and she is sitting 90% of the time. She does come out for grains, water and treats, but goes straightback to her nest when she is done. She wont letme close to her or the nest... my question here is, is there any chance of her eggs being fertile? Or should I be collecting her eggs so they don't rot?? ( please feel free to text me as well as iam rarely on the comptuer, but always have my phone. Thanks!!) 701.509.4851 -Megan
    This is one of the hens the day I got her 6 months ago.

    I don't think they're fertile... you can switch them with chicken eggs... or buy fertilr eggs and switch..
