I have 3 wyandotte 30weeks old today. So far no eggs from them. May be a stupid question but does a roo always fertilize the eggs if they are laying? He does he thing with the sex links I have but shows the wyandotte no interest.

Can you post photos of the birds in question? We may be able to see signs of maturity that come with production or nearing production and get an idea of whether these birds are near that point for you. Are your birds free range or confined? How many birds, total, do you have? It is not uncommon for a rooster to have favorite birds that get a lot of attention and some that get none.

Did you home hatch/get them as day-olds or were they semi-grown at the time you got them? If it's the latter, it is possible they are not as old as you were told and that would factor into the seemingly delayed production. If it's the former, are they from hatchery stock or private stock? Hatchery stock birds often have a faster rate of maturity than some of the other, more developed, lines of birds.
