I have a rooster, a hen, and one bitty. The rooster has fertilized the hen atleast five times that I`m aware of. She hasn`t layed any fertilized eggs. I think it is because she still has a bitty, but the bitty has already matured and has feathers.. I`m not sure what to do.. Someone Please Answer..

Laying eggs does not require a rooster mating with the hen. You only need the rooster for fertilized eggs. She lays eggs all by herself. If she just hatched an egg and is raising a chick, she is still "broody" and won't lay sometimes for a while.
