till she starts laying the baby chicks?
As soon as she lays the eggs?
The next egg to begin production after the first mating should scientifically be fertile.
The hen has a small pocket like area where the roosters sperm is deposited. She cab produce fertile eggs from him for 2 weeks and sometimes as long as 3weeks.
The next egg she lays may not be fertile. So don't confuse that with my above statement - it is the first yolk to be released and in the process of making an egg.
