This may be an incredibly stupid question, but we have never raised hens before and are now doing so in a spanish speaking country. I need a straight up answer in english so I am 100% sure I understand. Do chicks need a rooster around in order to lay eggs? If they do require a rooster- does he need to be seperated from them or does he need to 'assist' in their egg making? Thanks!
