    I could use your opinions...

    2 weeks ago yesterday I had to euthenize my beloved Cream Legbar rooster due to severe frostbite.. well today I received my first 2 cream legbar eggs.. what are the chances of them being fertile?

    Thanks for your opinons

    Don't know the probability, but it is possible. I know someone who got fertile eggs three weeks after her rooster's death. Good luck if you try to hatch them.

    well my curiosity may get the best of me.. I may sacrifice one of them to check and hope to get a few more in the coming days.
