    Yesterday, I found my first egg in the hen house after we found our rooster dead (my post in diseases/emergencies has that information)...so that issue took up my time to where I couldn't post.

    Today, another egg.

    Don't know from who yet...I assume from my older girls...but hey...a month early...eggs starting...I'm one happy lady! [​IMG]

    Is it at all possible your poor Roo fertilized that egg before he passed? Maybe you can hatch it?

    Don't laugh i am new to all this. [​IMG]

    Churken...no, not laughing at all.

    Unfortunately, none of the hens went broody and I have no brooder, so even though I believe the egg was fertilized, it wasn't "viable" because it got cold.

    I have a hen who went broody and hatched that rooster and 2 other roos and 3 girls last year...now all I have from that hatch are the 3 girls [​IMG]

    But, she said it was too cold to sit right now. haha
