Hi, I'm looking for some breeding tips i have a RIR rooster in cage with my 2 Lavender Araucana hens for breeding. I will admit this is my first time, and will need some help. I have a broody patiently waiting for some eggs so this is the time to get breeding i thought. My rooster is 11 months old. Do i have to leave them in this cage all day or just the morning till they can free range at 12:30??? How long do i have to keep them in this cage. How do i know if the eggs that i collect from the cage are fertile. Will the rooster even mate with them.
