    Sounds as though your eggs will be fertile when they get down to laying.

    Don't incubate the early eggs from a bird, though, as they are small and any chicks will be weak. Wait until the birds mature.

    Oh, and because they are mating/laying etc. does not mean that any of the girls will go broody.

    [​IMG] I bet Jill and Gracie are giving the boys a run for their money! I wouldn't count on any chicks till spring. Gracie's mom is a super setter so maybe Gracie will be too. Good luck!Keep me posted
