Hey everyone, I have not purchased any chickens as of yet, but I am in the planning stages of what type of breed, how many, coop-design, etc. My question is in regards to raising chicks via a broody hen. Is it common practice to introduce a rooster to a flock for just a few days (borrowed from a neighbor) to inseminate the females and subsequently have fertilized eggs for just that 2 week period? I would like to have unfertilized eggs for most of the egg laying season. Any advice would be much appreciated- Thanks!
