    4 months ago I bought 7 lovely chicks now they are big and one is a rooster. I already had one 2 year old hen. Today my 2 year-old spent the entire day inside but since I had chores I couldn't go out there to take her out but when I came out later she was laying on about 5 or 6 eggs. I know that she layed all of these eggs today because this morning they were not there. Is it possible that my rooster is already fertile? My dad thinks he's too young but is it possible? I appreciate any responses!!

    First off the hen didn't lay five or six eggs in one day. That is impossible. She either hid them from you or the other 'chicks' are laying. How old are the other chickens? Were they day old chicks when you got them? And your cockerel could've fertilized the eggs, even if they are only four months old. What breed?

    I'm not entirely sure what breed my hen is but I think she might be a cochin. My rooster is a Amber White.
