Hi guys, I have 6 hens- a little over a year old. I don't have a rooster. I was wondering if I should get one. Would they be happier and safer? I wouldn't want a rooster that would make a lot of ruckus. I really don't want fertile eggs either. How long are the eggs still good to eat after they are laid? Would I have to get the same kind of rooster as my hens or can I get a real pretty one from the fair? I don't think DH wants a rooster, but what was wondering if there are some good pro's to having them?
