Most pairs have fertility now! I completely forgot that we suddenly went away to Canberra just after pairing the birds and i didn't clip their behinds until we got home, so some pairs first eggs are clear. :)

 

I have one hen on 12 eggs :)

 

 

12 eggs...........gonna call her Omelette :rofl:

ARRG!! The hen with the 13 eggs has just eaten every single on of them :(

She is normally a great mum and produced about 20 chicks last season, dose this mean she is an egg eater now????

Sometimes it just means a disturbance or stress and she has felt her nest is vulnerable. She may need a break for awhile and try her again later.

Usually eggs hatch around the time the eleventh or twelfth is laid? I would assume most if not all were infertile or that would have been one bloody mess surely?

Yes, they were all clear... I think she must have known and ate them to not waste the resources she used to lay them all.

Before i went to take her out, she laid another egg, and she has laid another 2 since then and sitting perfectly. The cock she is with is one of my best ones, so I am really hoping to see some colour. She is a super breeding hen, and if this cock is going to produce, it will be with her.

We have all been sick the last few days and the birds have been mostly left alone to do their own thing. When I went out this morning to check boxes, I was pleasantly greeted by 5 pinkies :rofl:

 

One pinky is from my hen that went to the nationals this year,
