    i was wondering i have 3 hens that lay eggs but i also have a tom who has "easy acsses" to them. my question is if i sell the tom will the hens continue to lay. like chickens i know you dont need a rooster to have the hens lay eggs


    thanks

    Yes, the hens will lay even without a tom. You can still use the eggs in cooking. Just obviously won't be fertile.
