Do hens have a "season?"

It looks like my hens take turns coming into "heat." I have 2 roosters and a male duck and they all seem to go after the same hen and then in a couple of weeks they will go after another one leaving the previous one alone. Do they have a cycle? Sylviaanne

No, chickens do not have a heat cycle. Multiple roosters, and especially a drake breeding hens can have serious consequences.
