This is my personal opinion ..if a Rooster is Mounting he is probably fertilizing ...
if the hormones tell them to mount ...and mate ....to me that indicates ...they are fertile ..
Rooster pipes dont take as long to mature as hen pipes ..
Your eggs are fertilized ? it is probably a mix of the 2 roosters you have .
sperm stays in the hen for about 3 weeks ...
Scotty took on Papa Lucky yesterday ...the first time Ive seen this ..He took the fight to him ...
It looked like a Draw to me ...however after.. Lucky chased Scotty around ..so I guess he won the contest ..
Lucky - is heavier & shorter
Scotty is taller and Lighter
