Do roosters lose fertility over the winter? Kind of like how hens slow or stop egg production? I have a super sweet roo who might be 3 y.o. and I just candles some eggs at 7 days. They're all clear. I really wanted chicks from him. Should I give him a couple more weeks? Or is it soon enough to say he's infertile? The hens have only been back to laying for two weeks as well. I have not seen him dance or mount anyone so far this year, but I have in the past. He has a bumblefoot last summer that took time a while to heal, but I check him out last month and it hasn't returned. I'm going to be heartbroken if this is the end of his baby-making days, but he'll become a pet. And I do have a backup roo that's coming up on a year (that's kind of ********) so all is not lost.
