Second batch of eggs in the incubator this year. First batch should hatch on Monday, second batch in 2 weeks time. Fertility of both batches very poor. First batch, 18 eggs set, looks like only 2 chicks will hatch. Second batch, 14 eggs set, candled last night showed only 4 possibles.
Being the only rooster in the pen, I think he is too complacent. When he had a bit of competition, he was really active and fertility was good. Since the young cockerels started chilling in the freezer, I think he has gotten a bit lazy. The next batch of cockerels will be active soon. That should hopefully wake him up and get him working again.
Got 7 chicks out of 13 eggs. Happy with that. 3 remaining eggs left in the incubator. Hopefully they will hatch. The sussex pullets have started laying, I think. A different coloured egg showed up in the nest today. So I'll set more eggs in a few weeks time.
