After several days of watching my Tom attempt to mount his hens, I found two ( different colored! ) eggs!!!! Both hens are laying!!!! AND! They used the nest box ( which has a sun roof...) I made them! Now I know why he has been very fussy all morning! Now, since I haven't seen him actually mount the hens and 'connect' - is there a way to check fertility without opening eggs? Is it the same with chicken eggs, should I not set the first few? I'm so excited!!!!
