I want to have some RIR hens in my back yard for eggs and i have neighbors that might object to a big red alarm clock going off early in the morning-the rooster. will the hens lay with or without the rooster? Also years ago i raised 26 RIR 13 were hens 13 were roosters and two weeks before the hens d doubled started laying i had too give them away because we were moving. When they did start laying the all laid double yoke eggs. is this normal?
