    We have been causal keepers of 7 pet chickens for years. About months ago we decided to kick it up a notch and ordered 30 new hens, variety of breeds. Recently, one suspect hen has begun crowing! We will happily keep the rooster on board but I'm hoping someone can clarify what this means for egg production. Questions I have include when can the rooster fertilize eggs? He is an Americauna... Are my other breed
