So I have three roosters with frostbite on their feet. Two of them are essentially one footed. The other will lose toes but still has both feet. I was planning on hatching eggs this spring but will these roosters still do their thing? I'm worried I may have a fertilization problem.
it is a common misconception but they will be fine this spring, right now while they are still figuring out their legs they may not be up to fertilizing eggs, for a little they will come back around though.
Since it is winter their drive naturally goes down because nature tells them it is not the right time to have chicks hatching, I said maybe not till spring because it sometimes takes them a while to get back on the wagon after having any sort of injury.
