    Change roosters

    I have read that you can still incubate your chicken's egg 30 days after no rooster. I am not sure if that is true or not, but my question is, if I change my rooster, how long do I toss eggs until I get the breed I want? Maybe not toss eggs....but you get what I mean.

    In September we have 15 baby chicks coming in from Meyer's Hatchery.
