When our cockerel/almost Rooster starts breeding the hens everyday, how many broody hens should I expect to see? I'm going to let only one hen hatch as we need the others to lay the eggs we eat. Right now our cockerel, Mr Frizz, only jumps on Rusty(His fav hen) and Tiny(Second fav). He should be getting ready to attempt to breed our 2 Red Sex Links that he grew up around. Mr Frizz, Rusty, & Tiny are going to be 4 months old on August 26th.
