Well, nothing happening with the eggs and so Sunday afternoonGman took one of the eggs and broke it open. It wasn't fertile.
So he took another one...same thing. And so on and so on. He ended up opening 6 eggs! Not one of them fertile.
Maybe my rooster was shooting blanks??? I had read that can happen if it is too cold outside.
We're going to just leave the rest of the eggs in the incubator a couple more days on the off chance that some of them are fertile and just late. Disappointing, to say the least - but an experiment is just that!
Maybe now that the weather is warming up, we could segragate the rooster and a few of the hens and try again.
