Oops I have a rooster questions

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
We have been causal keepers of 7 pet chickens for years. About months ago we decided to kick it up a notch and ordered 30 new hens, variety of breeds. Recently, one suspect hen has begun crowing! We will happily keep the rooster on board but I'm hoping someone can clarify what this means for egg production. Questions I have include when can the rooster fertilize eggs? He is an Americauna... Are my other breed

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."
