    All of my birds are under a year old and all of the hens are laying. I've tried two batches of eggs with several breeds and none of the eggs are developing in the incubator.

    When I break some open some have the bullseye on the yolk. This does mean the eggs are fertile correct?

    If they're not fertile, what would cause that? How old does a rooster need to be before he's fertile?

    Yes if they have the bullseye they should be fertile. Not sure why they wouldn't develop though [​IMG]
