    Hell, remember i am new to chickens when u read my question.
    I was given 2 two yr old naked neck hens onr laid an egg yesterday and it was a fertile egg. Little white dot. Will she have yo be around another rooster to have another fertile one or does the one roo take care of more than tge one egg?

    A rooster can fertilize several eggs at once through just one mating, probably somewhere in the 5-7 range.

    The white dot doesn't mean it's fertile. A bullseye ring around the white dot does. You have to look close, because the lines are rather thin.
