In the Brooder

This is Rembrandt. He is new to our flock and until a week ago we thought he was a she!. We have a diverse flock. 2 One year old Black Australorps, a Buff Orpington, Ameracauna/EE, a Dominique, 4 Red comets, a bantum white legged leghorn, and this year we got 3 Barred Rocks, 3 more BO, 3 Ameracauna/Easter Eggers, 2 Columbian Wyandottes and one Isa Brown. So we will have 21 Hens and one EE Roo. How do we raise an EE roo? Does anybody know how they behave? Should we keep him separate? What type of bird would we get if Rembrandt was bred with any of the others. What color eggs would it produce? The offspring i mean....Also how can you tell if an egg has been fertilized? He is very pretty and i love his coloring so far. I didn't want a roo, especially since this is our second year raising chicks. It is definitely addicting! How old do they have to be to be able to fertilize the eggs? Sorry so many questions but i was totally thrown for a loop! I thought we had Ameracaunas for one thing, but was told they are EE. Still only get blue eggs from our year old hen though?? Anyway, help with any of this would be so appreciated!!!
