Hi there. I have a query. Our rooster died 20 days ago. A bantam has just gone clucky. We would like to raise more eggs. The big question is: For how long do hens lay fertile eggs after the rooster has done his work? This is a great site! We just discovered it. Thanks for creating it. Cheers, Tigridia, New Zealand. Araucanas, grey silkies, a ranger or 2, and barred rocks.
