    1. It is not recommended to hatch the small pullet eggs. The eggs are to small for a good healthy chick.

    2. Just because they are with roos doesn't mean they are fertile. You need to watch the eggs as you use them for the signs. I suggest the following thread:

    I like to wait a month or more because the reproductive system can take awhile to work the kinks out. You tend to get more double yolkers and eggs with blood/meat spots with new layers.
