Is there a way to know if my hen is sitting on fertilized eggs without actually having contact with the eggs?
Wow thats alot of girls for i guy. I am going to have a 3 hens to 1 roo.WeeLittleChicken said:You might be able to very quickly candle one after she's been on it for a few days.... You'd have to be fairly sneaky and pretty quick though if you want to return it. It'd tell you if at least the one you nabbed is fertile. I wouldn't worry too much. If you've seen the rooster doing his job they're more than likely fertile. I have one submissive rooster and 23 hens. He manages to get them all...
I would do three to one just because i really dont need more than two or three roosters for a large flock. The hens get too torn up with too meny roosters. Had too meny roosters before so i had to get rid of a few. Down to four roos and still planing on getting rid of two. Have about 50 chickens.[/QUOTE]EdisNiksic said:Wow thats alot of girls for i guy.
