Just out of curiousity: I have an OEGB (Porcelain) roo. I also have a few ladies. They are housed with bantam mille fleurs. If I was thinking of selling the eggs for hatching next summer just to cut some of the food costs, how long would I have to separate the group to receive 6-12 fertile eggs? Basically, how long after he does his deed will they eggs be fertile, and how long will they remain fertile. I really dont want to separate them permanently so I was thinking a small tractor if I decide to venture down this road. I'd also have to do a fertility check I assume ( i have heard speckledhen chat about this). I assume you just incubate some eggs, but what to do with the chicks! AHH---I am getting full so I have to pick my additions wisely! Is it worth it? I figure selling a dozen a month at $10, give or take, that would by one bag of crumble......correct me if Im wrong, please!
