I have 3 easter egger hens and 14 pullets, I separated the 2 roosters for about 3 weeks due to my hens have rough looking backs, I put one rooste r back in the with the flock and he's been doing his job, when can I start selling fertile eggs, basicly how long is it till a hen can produce a fertile egg after she's been mounted

I would suggest that in about two weeks you crack a few eggs and check them for the tell-tale bullseye on the germianl disc - if you see it in the majority of the eggs you check consider yourself to have sellable fertile eggs.
