    I have a broody hen ,much to my surprise.I do not have roosters,she is nesting on no eggs.I have tried to break her of this with no sucess.So i am now looking for fertile eggs,which seem to be scarce in my area.Now upon reading these questions and answers here,what would be the difference if i bought fresh eggs off of some one who has roosters with their hens?Any help please!

    There is a very good chance they would be fertile

    I'm at the top of Butler county. I would be happy to give you some eggs if you can get around this area. It looks like were a little more then an hour apart. I can meet you around Slippery Rock or Grove city if you'd like.
