    Hi! We are new to the world of raising chickens. We just incubated and hatched 7 chicks. Our question is this--How often do chickens mate? We've been trying to educate ourselves so we know what to expect. Thanks!

    First of all, welcome to the world of chickens!!!!

    Chickens mate whenever the rooster feels the need to do his job. It really depends on your rooster, some roosters are really laid back and don't breed much but other roosters are very aggressive breeders and breed all the time.
