    After taking one roo out and putting another roo in, how long do you have to wait to make sure babies would be from the second roo?

    My girls started laying about a week and half ago, how long should I wait before incubating their eggs?

    Thanks so much,

    Incubate now and just candle about four days later eventually you will have fertile eggs..... but to answer your question:how long do you have to wait to make sure babies would be from the second roo? 10 days

    yeah I have heard up to two or three weeks. when ever I lose a rooster I always grab a few of his eggs to hatch, before time is up.
