    start to mate and be fertile? i have a trio soon to be a quad. they are about 5 months or so. just started to lay eggs yesterday. how long till the young roo decides to make my girls fertile? im ready to have some leghorns hatch out! these were the origional breed i wanted but couldnt seem to find. then i did find some and now im finding out they mature faster than any others.
