I am sure this question has been asked before but i am going to ask it again. Here goes, how long after i put a rooster in my coop do i wait before i can think about incubating eggs. I have a friend who wants some chicks and i just got my rooster, he is a very beautiful phoenix, silver i think. I am pretty well educated on incubating but i can't seem to find a post on how long to wait to see if i am going to be able to check for fertilized eggs. If anyone can answer this it would be much appreciated.
