So, has anyone who cannot have a rooster ever 'borrowed' one from a friend to make their hens fertile? If so: Will the hens submit to him right away, or will he have to dominate them? How long do you need to borrow the rooster for? How long do the hens remain fertile? I'd like to make some babies over here but can not have a roo. As much as I would LOVE a nice fancy faverolle roo. <3 I would love to borrow a nice boy (from a good trusted friend who practices good biosecurity like me!) and let him love on the ladies while all my neighbors are at work. Input?
