I habe a question i have a flock of 60 or so chickens. A mix of hens and roos of different varieties. Well i want to breed specific breeds now. For examples i have speckeled roo and hen pairs, and polish pairs. So they have been free range and many different types of roos have breed with all of the females. Today i put the pairs i want to have pure breeds from into separate pens. How long until i know they are mating pure pairs? Lile today they could have mated with a different breed. But now they are separated so they will only be mating thier same kind. Will the other mating matter tomorrow? Do i need to wait a few days before starting to collect eggs? Sorry hope this is not super confusing. I appreciate any help!
