Next spring (I'm in the S. Hemisphere) I'd like to make sure certain hens and roosters get frisky together and make fertile eggs. We're making a few changes to our paddocks, etc over winter so I'd like to plan and incorporate any requirements for breeding. I have 3 particular cockerels I think I'd like to mate, each with 2 or 3 specific pullets/hens I have my eye on... 1) How long should I keep the preferred hens away from other roosters before I match them with the "right" one? 2) How long should the 2 or 3 hens be penned and cooped with the "right" one to ensure fertile eggs? (Duration will tell me which sized pens are OK) 3) Are 2 hens with a horny rooster going to be OK for the duration? (Hoping yes or I have to play the catch/release/catch the rooster game!) 4) Do I need to keep the hens separate for a period to check their eggs are fertile? I'd like to hold their fertile eggs, I have 2 hyper broodies . Thanks!
