What's considered to be a good fertility rate for a roo with 12 hens?
Quote:Well.......don't quite have that yet. Is 98% ok?
lol I knew someone would get a chuckle out of that. 98% sounds fine. I know I sound unreasonable, but for most breeds 100% is attainable with the right cockbird in your pen. There are certainly exceptions, but it is not an unreasonable goal.
Optimal is like 8 hens to one roo, I think? But 12 is still certainly possible to get 100%
