Can anyone tell me a method of telling if an hatching egg is fertile without cracking it open or sticking with your chickens 24/7? Our last hatch was a real let down as most of the eggs were never fertile in the first place, and out of the 48 we began with, we have 5 chicks. 11 hatched, but we didnt have very good turnout with the crooked toes ones, and a few just died. Does anyone have any ideas on how to make the next hatch more succesful? In the meantime, the remaining are doing very well, and can't tell each other apart from their little turkey and duckling companions!
