Okay, as I am very new to this and now have a Roo w/my pullets-6 1/2mos old, will they actually breed in the winter? The reason I ask is because dh and I see the roo trying to get on them already-not sure if anythings happening yet or not !!?? This morning one of my BO pullets was sitting on an egg for a while and we were wondering if it is possible that that could be a fertilized egg? I thought I read somewhere that everything is different in the winter? The BO did end up getting off the egg-but just wondered if she got broody in the future if we should let her go-or would it be wasting her time??? Also, I've not actually seen him on any of my BO girls but he favors the BR girls, which is what he is. I'm assuming when it's time he'll take care of all of them, right?
