Hey guys! Kind of a dumb question but i gotta know lol. The title says it all. Does a rooster know when a hen is ready to breed? We raise cows and i know a bull can tell when a cow is "in", does the same go for roosters. I have 3 hens total. Two of them are singing their egg song and have been doing so for a month now and one is not. The two that sing are constantly getting chased, harrased, and mounted by the roosters where they run and hide constantly but the other does not even get looked at and she just chills with the boys. So do they know they are about to lay? And by the way one has started laying because she gave me my first little egg on Thanksgiving and then another this morning. Thanks!
