    My hen is nearly going to sit on her eggs. when she is going to sit on her eggs will the rooster mate with her? should i separate them or the rooster wont mate with her while she's sitting on her eggs?

    Hello I was just wondering so what breed is she? Is she broody at the moment? and no I would not keep the rooster in with her as he may try to mate whilst she is setting and crack or damage the eggs hope this helped :)
