    I bought a new Brinsea fully auto incubator last week and today my eggs are set! My roo is a handsome welsummer and the hens are salmon faverolle, production red, Easter Egger and Delaware! I'm super excited but not expecting much :( My rooster is only about 7 months... Not sure if he's doing the deed correctly... But I hope so!! Good or bad chance of the eggs being fertile?

    If your ratio is good (not too many hens per rooster), i think there's a good chance your eggs are fertile. You can know in 10 days. :)
