    I have a buff rooster and 8 BSL hens...is there anyway to check the fertility of the eggs?

    Crack one open and see if it has the bullseye thing (circle with a dot in it, in the yolk part)... I'd say most of em are fertile... when I use our eggs, most of em are fertile.

    i asked a similiar question semi-recently -
    i have 1 BO roo and 12 hens..... I was told by BYC members that the probability of all our eggs would be pretty great. I'm sure you may have a couple slip by but i would also agree the odds are pretty good for all fertile eggs.
