    Ok if it is... either i have a rooster/hen chicken or idk... cause the only roosters i have are 11/10 weeks old and have no contact with any of the hens.... :s and she is the only one with "fertile eggs" so how in the world is that fertile... my chickens are weird

    here is the chicken with the only fertile eggs in my whole adult flock of 3 [​IMG]

    she is the only hen with fertile eggs... and she doesnt go anywhere near the chicks.... her sister flys over to hang with them and scare them... but her eggs .. are not fertile... so u can see why i am confused lol

    Quote:[​IMG] the reason i find this weird is because she doesnt go anywhere near the chicks and they dont go near her because she attacks them... the only one that goes near them is Violet her sister... constanly pullet her ut of their little fenced off part of the area... cuz i dont want her eating their Medicated grower crumble.
