So I am doing my research to see if raising chickens is something I want to get into. I have been reading on here for days, but still have a few questions. 1. If I have a rooster, will my eggs always be fertilized, or is there only a specific time of the year for that? 2. How do I plan coop space if I want my hens to raise chicks since I have no idea how many chicks there will be? And just so you know, I am looking for both eggs and meat, but I am not interested in raising meaties. Thanks for the help.
