So I just recently got 4 new chickens that were all supposed to be hens. As they've grown older, about 6 or 7 weeks now, I've started thinking that one is actually a rooster. I was hoping to get eggs from the hens, so what happens if I keep the rooster around? Will all the eggs be fertilized or if I get to them quick enough will they be able to be eaten? Any answers help, thank you.

If you have a rooster, most likely the eggs will be fertile. They will not begin to develop unless incubated so if you collect daily they will be fine to eat.
