Need to know, after a rooster breeds with a hen how long will the sperm remain in the hen? I want to separate my breeds and be able to incubate true breed eggs. Example: Partridge cochin hen to partrige cochin rooster. I am going to have a lot of Hines 57 varities in the incubator right now and need to chang things in order to sell chickens.

The sperm can remain in the hen as long as a month.
