  2. Hi Stuart,
    Hope the partridge chick that hatched is doing ok. Not sure why the eggs are not fertile, could depend on the age of the laying partridge hen and male, the older they get the less fertile the eggs are likely to be. Do you know where the eggs came from? Did you buy fertile eggs for hatching or do you have a laying partridge and her male?
    Kind regards

  4. Hi Stuart, The 3 females could be sharing the nest and not all mating with the male. How's the chick? I've mentioned your query on my farmingfriends facebook page to see if any one has any other answers. https://www.facebook.com/farmingfriends Kind regards Sara@farmingfriends
