I have three hens and one rooster.. They are all kept together. My plan from the beginning was to raise these chickens as egg layers but i ended up with a rooster also. So im curious if i can keep them together once they reach maturity and start laying. I plan to remove all eggs laid daily but didnt know if i should separate the rooster from the flock once they do start laying. Im completely new to this whole thing so just not sure if its safe to eat fertilized eggs or not?
