    Question: If you have seven hens penned with one rooster, what is the probability that all eggs laid will be fertilized eggs? If not all, then approx. how many would you say are going to be fertile. So far we get about 6 eggs a day from seven hens?

    Hi, I'm sure no expert but I think he will have no problem making the rounds on your 7 hens. I think one Roo for maybe 8-10 hens is the rule, possibly 12 hens. Someone here will be able to tell you for sure. [​IMG]
