I have never bred chickens before and need a little help. My daughter has 5 bantams in their own coop. She has 4 hens (2 spangled hens, 1b.b.red, 1 wheaton, and then Ross the Rooster. We have had them for a year now and the hens have stopped laying eggs for the last 6 months? She got an incubator about a month ago and we would love to hatch some little ones. Should I seperate the rooster from the girls? Any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks.
