So I'm a bit puzzled... all the books I have read said you do not need a rooster for egg production, just if I want fertilized eggs. So people that I have talked with said although this is true, my girls may "lose their interest" in laying as many if there isn't a rooster..... I really didn't want the hassle of a rooster, but am second guessing myself. I have 25 baby chicks coming on June 7....I realize I wouldn't be getting eggs until around Oct anyway, but didn't know if I should get a roo? Someone please post pros and cons of a roo!!!! thanks!
