In the Brooder
- Jun 23, 2019
I added some hens to my coop and was given a Rhode Island Red Rooster by a friend. All are getting along fine, but I'm concerned with what to do if the rooster fertilizes any of the eggs. Don't really want to raise chicks yet. How can I keep the rooster from fertilizing the eggs, or can I? How can I check the eggs to see if they are fertilized? I am assuming the rooster does his thing after the eggs are laid but I'm new to raising chickens. Thanks in advance for your comments.
