Will my rooster barred my hens

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm getting a welsummer rooster tomorrow and the guy said he just got out of molting and doesn't have his tail feathers yet I was wondering is it a guarantee that he will fertilize all of my soon to be hens.i have 6 pullets due to be laying in a month and bye the time the rooster gets out of quarantine they will be laying. The reason I ask is because if I sell the fertile eggs I want to make sure they are fertile . And will molting make him not mate with the hens.

All my roosters keep right on mating during the molt, they don't seem affected by it like the hens.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.
