    It can take even just one mating to fertilize a hen, but I'm not sure why you would want to move her because she's been fertilized...

    Are you wanting to keep her separated from other roosters so the chicks would be purebred?

    Just not sure of the need to move her. (?)

    Why do you want to do that? Can you explain why?

    Just because your roo is mating hens doesn't mean they need to be moved. If you're not wanting fertilized eggs for some reason, the rooster would most likely need to be penned separately, as he will mate them all. [​IMG]
