    I was wondering how long until I can expect most of the eggs to be fertile. He mounted a hen yesterday, and today I diddent catch him mounting them but he shuffles alot, but only a couple drop down for him when im watching. So he is already starting to mount. id like to incubate eggs soon though.

    In most cases you can expect fertile eggs in two or three days after adding a rooster to the flock.
