    Lets say you have BO and RIR hens that have been running with a Golden comet rooster. You want to seperate the BO/ RIR hens and put them in with a rooster of the same breed for straight breed fertile eggs. How long would you leave them in with the coresponding rooster to make sure you have straight breed fertile eggs?

    A general rule is about 3 weeks and then start collecting.
