    So recently my neighbor bought a rooster to eat. He told me if I could hold it for two day until his sister came to eat it and kill it. I put it in with my 3 hen who peck the poor guy, but then I notice that he would mount my oldest hen, who recently came out of her broodiness. Then he force my 5 month easter egger to mate,as well as my little partridge silkie, who is extremely small. I separated him until he was taken away. I know he only mated with my easter and silkie once, but I know he mated over 5 times with my production red. Do you think all my hens will lay fertile egg? My easter and silkie have never layed an egg.

    mukilteo, wa
    I have tested what sumi says, I was hatching eggs that were laid three weeks after the rooster was gone.
