    How long does it take for eggs to be fertile from 1 rooster when you seperate it from another rooster? I'm wanting to get eggs to hatch from someone and the hen was around 2 different roosters unill a week ago.

    I would give her 3 more weeks away from the other rooster to make sure. One "fertilization" can be good for 3 weeks or possibly more.
