    Ok, I have never hatched eggs before. I've only had one hen go broody and she sat on eggs that were not fertile.

    I now have a really handsome OEG Roo who has been doing his thing with the hens. Now the questions

    1. How long after the Roo does his thing do eggs become fertile?

    2. After the hen hatches the eggs, will she still be broody and want to set on more eggs?

    3. How long to you have to incubate quail eggs?
