Is this like the human equivalent of a sperm donor?

Hey! Renting a rooster is actually a great idea - I've never thought of it. Especially in suburban areas where you can have hens but not a roo - you could Rent-a-Roo for a while (until the neighbors complained I guess) then incubate those eggs. Hmmm... I wonder how long it takes after you see the roo do his "JOB" - for the eggs to be laid and be fertile?

I'm in NC - I could rent out my RIR. .... there is always the concern of diseases though. That would be my biggest concern actually. Not so much with very small suburban flocks of 2 or 3 hens. But some would say that roosters are practically free - so just go get one, bring it home - let it mate - then have soup! Call it, "He got Lucky then Unlucky Soup".

My understanding is that a hen can hoard the sperm and lay fertile eggs for a month or so- is this correct, knowledgeable folks?

This could be the way to happiness for city chicken addicts!
