    I've never ran across any info that says one way or the other so i dont know but my wife insists that they do. Apparently she works with someone who has chickens and claims this to be so.

    asking the consensus.....

    nope doesn't make a difference. I have noticed from personal experience that my hens are happier without a roo.
