    Aug 4, 2013
    I have 6 Hy-line hens, 2 bantams, and 1 Barbrock and a Rhode island red rooster.
    I let them out everyday so they are freerange. we feed them, table scraps, laying mash and maize pellets.
    if I wanted would the hyline hens and the rhode island rooster make good laying chicks?
    and how would I check if the eggs are fertilized :)

    Thanks in advance
