The rooster probably won't be able to mate properly with your hens, though some can be quite inventive and figure it out, he will probably just mate their backs.

Every hen has a personal color to their eggs, so it would be best to watch them and try to see who's laying the eggs. Otherwise I would just be guessing.

He will probably mount them, but whether he can fertilize them, you will just have to wait and watch, every rooster is different.
