Okay here it goes..... I currently have a EE Roo with 1 EE hen, 2 speckled sussex, 3 barred rock and 3 mixes. I would like to start selling pure breed hatching eggs of the EE, Speckled Sussex and Barred Rock. Maybe even hatch them out and sell my chicks locally. I plan on getting a barred rock roo and speckled sussex roo also. I like the bachelor pad idea to keep my hens and roos separated. That way I can let them free range every other day, boys one day and girls the next. Here is my plan: When I need hatching eggs put the chosen hens & roo together in a pen and make sure they do the deed, then put the roo back with the other boys once he finishes his job. Sorta like you do with you breed rabbits. Will this work? How long once I separate my hens from my EE roo for the eggs to no longer be fertile and allow me to breed them to a new roo? How long should I wait for the new eggs to be fertile? How long does a roos sperm last? How often should I breed them? SO many questions I would love any and all advice!
