Will bringing a rooster into the yard inspire my 13-month-old hens to start laying regularly again? Some days it's 6 eggs, some days it's 2. This is not good when people love the eggs and want to buy them! If bringing in a roo helps, how does one do it? Should he be penned for his safety? My girls have daily stare-downs with our Bull Terrier over who gets to roll in the dirt baths, and they don't back down! Would having a penned roo do any good? What about quarantine?
