Not sure where to post this properly. When does fertilization actually take place? If I took my laying hens (if I had any ) to a run with a rooster, how exactly would things go? Do I leave her there for a week and collect the eggs everyday, would those be the fertile ones? How many days after bringing her home would I expect to still get fertile eggs or is it a same day mating kind of thing? That is what I would figure, what little I know. Just wondering. Thanks for explaining.
