These will seldom yield eggs which -e strongly fertilised and vigorous chickens. We hear little about chic kens dying in their shells when the eggs are set under hens, for the loss is very small in these cases, but'we put the trouble down to shells too soft, bad setters, etc. The egg is the starting point of the chicken, there fore it must be fertilised and contain all the elements necessary to produce a chicken.
